All Classical Portland is launching an arts journalism mentorship program for youth next month.
Five young people (ages 15-21) will be selected as Roving Reporters, where they will learn key storytelling skills and emerge as arts ambassadors for their communities in the process.
Each reporter will identify two arts events happening in their community that they would like to cover. The reporters will then be given tickets, introductions to the musicians/artists involved to interview as well as the tools and training to produce their reporting content.
All Classical Portland production staff will mentor these young reporters, providing them with guidance and insight on what it is to be a broadcaster and arts leader in their communities.
The content created will be shared on All Classical Portland's website, social media channels and on-air. This program is open to youth in all of Oregon and SW Washington.
Youth who wish to apply should leave a voicemail with a two- to three-minute audio sample at (503) 802-9454.
