About AAJA Young Professionals Network (Yung AAJA)
AAJA Young Professionals Network (Yung AAJA) is the place for early career and student journalists. The community centers around skill development, mentorship and helping others find work. We also encourage posting of jobs, internships, fellowships and scholarships.
This will be a space specifically for young journalists, but we welcome the presence of older and more experienced journalists. Mentorship starts here: Yung AAJA will be the network to help point the next generation of journalists in the right direction.
