The George Washington University’s Prime Movers Media program sends veteran journalists and university interns to mentor high school students in elective media classes in Washington D.C. and after-school media clubs in Philadelphia. While the professionals spend periods ranging from two weeks to a month or more exclusively sharing their knowledge and experience, interns from GW’s School of Media and Public Affairs and Temple University’s Department of Journalism in Philadelphia work a full semester. They all help students and teachers create or revitalize school-based media programs in television, radio, print and digital /online production. PMM provides training and fosters connections among news media companies, universities and high schools to help promote diversity in the next generation of journalists.
