Society of Professional Journalists creates mentor database

Michelle Harmon, State Director

The publication of a recent study of journalism programs throughout the United States has prompted a mentor database sponsored by the Society of Professional Journalists.

According to the SPJ, “Many high school journalism programs report they receive very little help, if any, from local professionals or area universities.”

The publication upon which this initiative was prompted is available on the JEA website.
