Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is a report from three Ontario high school journalists involved with the Canadian Youth Journalism Project who have kept their publications running even in the midst of Covid. They have been exactly what has been needed: La Silhouette, one high school newspaper, "has been uniquely suited to provide our student body with school news, entertainment, a space to share opinions and resources," writes Maxim Gushchin. Similarly with Jonell Pantlitz at the Toronto Caribbean newspaper: "my articles have allowed me to include the voices of other students and teenagers so that their views can be better understood by our newspaper’s mature audience." Meanwhile Anya Singh strives "to create an interconnected community by empowering students to form opinions, find their own voices and express themselves" through CNXN, her Toronto-based magazine.
