What is WHYY Summer?
WHYY Summer offers intensive multi-week experiences for teens finishing grades 9-12 and a spring break program for middle school students. The project-based programs provide immersive media-production experiences in which the participants work in teams to create original news or film productions in news.
As a student, what will I be doing each day?
Just like the Summer Journalists program for older students, the Spring Break program for middle school students will teach you all the skills you need to be a journalist in the 21st century. You’ll be working with other students to write and produce news stories for the web, using audio, video, text and photos!
You’ll gain experience in using professional filmmaking and recording equipment, and you’ll learn from some of the best in Philadelphia—WHYY’s award-winning reporters and education staff.
What kinds of students attend WHYY Summer?
Students who attend WHYY Summer are middle school students who love to learn new things and find out more about the world around them. Maybe you've wanted to be a reporter or a filmmaker for as long as you can remember. Maybe these are new interests you'd like to explore.
