Leave a legacy; mentor a journalism student

It’s no secret that journalism is a tough industry. That’s why CCNMA is calling on professional journalists to join our 2014 mentoring program to guide college students as they hone their reporting skills, apply for internships and prepare to graduate.

We’ll be launching this year’s program in the fall at ABC 7 studios in Glendale and are looking for professionals (print, photo, radio, broadcast, multimedia) like you to make this program a success. Help us show the diversity within the profession. If you’re a reporter, photographer, producer, editor, manager, designer, etc., then join us on Wednesday, Oct. 8. That’s when you’ll meet your mentor/mentee and begin what will be a mutually beneficial relationship.

Students should arrive by 5 p.m. Mentors should arrive at 6 p.m.

If you’re interested in participating as a mentor or mentee, email CCNMA Executive Director Julio Moran to sign up. For security and parking reasons, only those who have signed up by Sept. 26 will be allowed to participate.

Students from CCNMA’s Cal State Northridge chapter will be participating. Below, CCNMA President Yvette Cabrera discusses the mentoring program at a chapter meeting in May.
