The Student Voice

The Student Voice program offers high schoolers practical, accessible journalism advising by undergraduate students of journalism from the University of Oregon. The “near-peer” mentors provide honest tips on navigating journalism industry by sharing their personal experiences and interviewing industry professionals about theirs. The Student Voice provides opportunities to network with fellow journalists and build a basic portfolio of work through student-directed practice activities.

With students’ consent, we publish selected content submitted by dozens of secondary school students nationwide in The Student Voice Digest and work to have it republished by mainstream media organizations. University of Oregon, School of Journalism and Communication undergraduates mentor high school participants and their advisors through weekly virtual newsroom sessions. Leading up to the annual publication, participants engage with industry experts weekly and receive coaching in small groups.  Each year, we acknowledge excellent student work in our Student Voice Awards.
