From our friends at the https://www.americanpressinstitute.org/:
The American Press Institute has opened applications for a new year-long program to support news organizations that want to build more of their journalism based on community listening.
We’re looking for individuals who want their journalism to be better informed and inspired by their communities’ needs but who need guidance on strategies to make that happen. The goal is to empower more journalists and newsrooms to build the muscle for community listening by completing one long-term project, seeding the opportunity to spread that approach into more aspects of their newsrooms.
Interested journalists can apply by May 24 for a combination of in-person training, an expert visit to their newsroom, and remote support in completing a project designed to build this engagement skillset into one’s news organization. API will select roughly 10 journalists (reporters, editors, producers, etc.) representing different newsrooms to receive this support starting in summer 2019 and running through summer 2020.
