Get Involved as a Mentor or Editor for IndyKids
Do you have a passion for children’s literacy and progressive journalism? IndyKids helps young students ages 9-14 improve writing, reading and research skills while learning about social justice issues and world events that aren’t always covered by mainstream children’s media. We’re looking for dedicated volunteers who have a background in journalism, writing or education to mentor our Kid Reporters and edit the IndyKids newspaper. firstname.lastname@example.org
