The San Diego Association of Black Journalists is looking for a few good volunteers. Every year the organization holds a hands-on seminar for budding journalists. If you would like to work hands-on with high school and college journalists to teach them about broadcast, photojournalism, public relations, or online journalism, sign up here and volunteer. You will be contacted by the SDABJ volunteer coordinator. This is a yearly event! You will meet journalists and managers from several different media outlets across the city. It is a great time and a great place to network.
If you are a student, and would like to participate, or know a student that would, visit sdabj.org for an application.
INFO FROM SDABJ.ORG: "Do not miss the opportunity to rub shoulders with the best journalists in San Diego when SDABJ offers Pro For a Day on November 9, 2013. This is an invaluable opportunity for high school and college student to have a hands-on experience producing their own stories for broadcast or online publication. There will be a component for students interested in public relations as well.
Offered free of charge, interested students will spend the entire day working with professional journalists who will share a wealth of knowledge and decades of experience. Registration is required as space is limited."
