Since 1977, the National Journalism Center, a project of Young America's Foundation, has provided aspiring conservative and libertarian journalists with the premier opportunity to learn the principles and practice of responsible reporting.  The National Journalism Center combines 12 weeks of on-the-job training at a Washington, D.C.-based media outlet and once-weekly training seminars led by prominent journalists, policy experts, and NJC faculty.


The program matches interns with print, broadcast, or online media outlets based on their interests and experience.  Interns spend 30 hours/week gaining practical, hands-on journalism experience. Potential placements include The Washington Times, The Washington Examiner, CNN, Fox News Channel, and more.


Students will attend the NJC seminar one day a week, sharpening their writing and investigative reporting skills and gaining a better understanding of media, society, and public policy, and the intersection between the three in Washington, D.C.
