The Pulitzer Center joins the News Literacy Project

Updates


The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting has joined the News Literacy Project as the 14th news organization to enroll in the national effort to help middle school and high school students become more frequent consumers and creators of credible information.

The Pulitzer Center is an innovative nonprofit leader in supporting the independent international journalism that U.S. media organizations are increasingly less able to undertake. It focuses on underreported topics, promoting high-quality international reporting and creating platforms that reach broad and diverse audiences. Reports it has funded have appeared on PBS NewsHour and in The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, The Christian Science Monitor and The Huffington Post.

The Pulitzer Center will inform its participating journalists about the opportunity to volunteer with the News Literacy Project. NLP, in turn, is introducing the Global Gateway, the Center’s educational program, to its schools. This program provides the opportunity for students to engage with Center-supported reporting and journalists, both online and through school visits, and to report on the local implications of the global issues introduced.

“The Pulitzer Center is committed to producing quality journalism and fostering an appetite for global reporting among the next generation,” said Jon Sawyer, the center’s executive director. “We are pleased to support the News Literacy Project’s work to help students become more informed consumers of media.”
