“I would recommend NJC to anyone who has a passion for policy, media, and following the news. NJC is one of the best introductions to DC and provides its students with incredible opportunities. Students will leave NJC more confident, better writers, and better prepared for the real world.”

“The National Journalism Center helped me to plot my course between who I am now and who I would like to be in the future. I came away with lists of things I can actually apply to my life: skills I want to develop, internships I want to apply for, publications where I want to submit work, etc. My vision of the opportunities available to me as a young writer have dramatically expanded.”
