The Solutions Journalism Network is thrilled to open applications for its third annual mentorship program, connecting journalists just getting started in reporting solutions stories with experienced practitioners.
For the 2021 cohort, each participant will be assigned to a core cohort and matched with an individual mentor of their choice, selected in consultation with SJN from contributors to the Solutions Story Tracker. Participants will aim to produce at least two solutions stories by October of this year.
The 2021 mentorship program:
- Runs from April - October 2021.
- Supports mentees in producing (or helping produce) at least two solutions stories SJN’s Solutions Story Tracker. Applicants will be asked to provide at least one solutions story pitch and will be evaluated based on how well it meets the four solutions journalism criteria.
- Expects each mentee to participate in two conversations each month via Zoom — one with their cohort and one with their mentor.

Applications are due Monday, March 29, 5pm EST.
