It’s our anniversary!


In just eight years, NLP has reached more than 23,000 students and worked with 150 diverse schools and 31 partner news organizations — and 300 journalist fellows have delivered more than 600 lessons.

The News Literacy Project celebrated two milestones today — the eighth anniversary of its founding and the seventh anniversary of its classroom program, which kicked off with an event in Brooklyn featuring founding board member Soledad O’Brien. Since then we’ve worked with more than 150 diverse and dynamic middle schools and high schools in four major markets.

From the beginning, we’ve made it our mission to provide young people with the skills to separate fact from fiction in today’s vast information landscape. The need for news literacy has never been greater, and we’re honored to be serving that need.

We offer our humble thanks to all of our supporters and partners, and we look forward to bringing our program to teachers and students across the country in 2016 and beyond!
