"How did we get through all of this? My answer brings us to the theme I end up with every time I write about ELi: the amazing teamwork of the people of East Lansing around ELi—around the mission of sharing local news that is accurate and nonpartisan."
The deadline approaches for ELi’s first Summer Youth Journalism Program, a two-week program happening in August. Accepted applicants aged 14-22 will be given a $250 stipend for participation and will also be paid for published reporting.
ELi's two-week-long Summer Youth Journalism Program still has a small number of spots open, and so we have extended the application deadline for people aged 14-22. Meanwhile, from you old people, we are looking for lunch money for the kids.
The Lansing Area Community Trust has awarded ELi a $3600 grant to support our Summer Youth Journalism Program! Applications for the program are now being accepted from people in the 14-22 year age group.
As we come to the end of our third fiscal year, East Lansing now has what we think no other community in America does: a fully-functional, sustainable, nonpartisan, nonprofit, citizen-reported public news service.
