RJI Fellow helps Missouri teens engage with local newspapers to see value, lives in news

News outlets need the buy-in and trust of teens as news targets now and in the future, says Nico Gendron, freelancer and creative strategist at The New York Times.

That inspired her to tackle a fellowship project at the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute to help a group of Missouri teens see themselves in news and see the value of news.

“If you see yourself reflected in your local paper or the media overall, you’ll see the media as a resource and news as worth reading,” says Gendron.
