Streetsblog L.A. Looking for Student Leader from South L.A.

As part of our grant from the California Endowment, Streetsblog Los Angeles is looking for a student-journalist, age 17-21, who was born or lives in South Los Angeles for a four-month paid internship that would begin in early- to mid-October.

The winning candidate will work with Joe Linton, Damien Newton, and Sahra Sulaiman and, by the end of the session, will have published stories profiling civic leaders, covering community events, and attending City Council meetings, as well as a special research project of their choosing.

Applicants must have reliable and regular Internet access (we are an online publication, after all), two writing samples, and a reference from a English or writing teacher or advisor to a student publication. Some college coursework or published writing experience is preferred.

This is a paid position. The winning candidate should expect to work 5-15 hours per week and the stipend will depend on the hours the student can put towards the project. Applications are due by the end of September. Send your application, writing samples and cover letter to damien@streetsblog.org
