On this Thanksgiving, we wanted to let you know how thankful we are to have such dedicated and amazing teachers as part of the International Education and Resource Network. We recognize the outstanding work you do with your students and your commitment to providing them with a globally-focused education and skills for their success in school and their careers. Each year, inspired by your efforts, the team at iEARN-USA seeks out new programs and partnerships to support you and your students. This fall, we’re pleased to announce an exciting program beginning this fall called, Photojournalism 2.014: Heritage, Hunger, and Food Security.
This program, funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs, builds on iEARN’s World Youth News
, Finding Solutions to Hunger Project
, and several journalism education programs
Photojournalism 2.014 will engage educators and youth in Pakistan, Tajikistan, and the United States in cross-cultural collaboration to help them develop photojournalism and media skills. Features of the program will include:
- An online course and webinars for educators;
- Photojournalistic education and fieldwork for students; and
- The opportunity for educators and students to apply to participate in a three-day regional workshop and exhibition in Tajikistan at the conclusion of the program.
We are currently inviting U.S. high school educators, high schools and youth organizations in the U.S. to apply for participation in our Photojournalism 2.014 program. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, and the program will begin in January, so be sure to apply soon! If you are not a U.S. high school teacher or administrator or U.S. youth organization staff member, please pass this along to others who might be interested. To find out more and how to apply, please visit our website, or contact Program Manager Nicole Weitzner at: firstname.lastname@example.org or (212) 870-2693 ext. 4913.
Thank you again for all the work that you do, and Happy Thanksgiving!
