Voices is the Asian American Journalists Association's training fellowship for college and graduate students. Voices selected 15 student journalists nationally out of more than 100 applicants for our 2017 class. Our students received hands-on training and mentorship from 12 professional Voices editors. For the past three months, Voices students have been collaborating to produce four long-form multimedia pieces. Our 2017 class will present their pieces during the AAJA National Convention in Philadelphia on Friday, July 28. Join us!

As always, a huge thank you to our sponsors and donors; we couldn't do this without you.

We've arrived in Philly, and the students are working on their projects! This year, we've made significant changes to the Voices program in an effort to better prepare students for the ever-expanding news media universe. We aimed to encourage collaboration, provide skill-specific training and enable students to better participate in the AAJA National Convention. Check out what we're up to!

Follow along with us.

A Note from our directors

Public trust in the media is at an all time low. As proud Voices alumni and faculty members and as individuals who believe in the importance of journalism in a democracy, we believe that volunteering our time with Voices is how we help train this next generation of up-and-coming journalists—journalists who produce quality editorial work, who understand the larger impact their work has on society, and who are deeply engaged with driving the direction of the industry.
