1,000 Journalists To Report for America

A new project that aims to place 1,000 journalists in US newsrooms in the next five years was announced at the Google News Lab Summit this week. Report For America takes ideas from the Peace Corps, Americorps, Teach for America and public media, though it receives no government funding. RFA is a partnership between Google News Labs and the Groundtruth Project and its reporters will get training from the Center for Investigative Journalism, the Lenfest Institute for Journalism, the Solutions Journalism network and the Knight Foundation.
