REAL CHI YOUTH FREE SPIRIT MEDIA'S NEW MEDIA & COMMUNITY JOURNALISM NEWSROOM

Real Chi Youth is an experimental "learning newsroom" in North Lawndale for young adults interested in learning to produce high-quality, solutions-oriented, community journalism on the job. Our journalists learn to use new media technology to interrupt and transform the one-note news coverage that Chicago's West and South sides receive.
