For almost 30 years Mosaic has offered high school students from diverse communities professional training in journalism through an intensive two-week summer workshop held at San Jose State University Students learn the nuts and bolts of reporting, news writing, photography, multimedia and social media.
We’ve recently added a school-year program. Dubbed 'Mosaic Vision' it offers our summer alumni the opportunity to continue covering the news and build their journalistic skills. We also offer support for high school journalism teachers.
Mosaic alumni have gone on to work for the nation's top newspapers, online sites and other news outlets. Learn more
We depend on donations to offer our high-quality program to educate and inspire future journalists! We thank you for your support.
