Report for America



The crisis in journalism has become a crisis for our democracy.

Report for America is calling on a new generation of journalists to serve in community news organizations across the country.

Their mission is to strengthen journalism, enrich communities, empower citizens and restore trust in media by developing and sustaining a new wave of journalists to serve local news organizations in under-covered corners of America.

Emerging journalists are selected by Report for America based on their skill, character and commitment to public service journalism. These RFA corps members begin their journey with intensive training and workshops to prepare them for the year ahead. Local news organizations apply to host corps members in their newsrooms and deploy them to do critically important local journalism.
