PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs (SRL)

PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs (SRL) connect youth with public media in meaningful and substantive ways. The program's video journalism curriculum, teacher training and mentorships produce unique video stories that explore how national issues affect local communities. With this support, SRL works with students to create content for national broadcast and online platforms, and focus on (1) expanding opportunities for local public media stations; (2) increasing youth participation in live and digital initiatives, such as American Graduate, elections and other major national civic events; (3) providing the training, support and equipment that low-socioeconomic status students need to produce top-quality stories; (4) creating content for local programming and social media; and (5) increasing opportunities for student station internships and other opportunities.
