About National Youth Leadership Forum: Film & Journalism
Make Your Creative Mark on the World
NYLF Film & Journalism, in collaboration with New York City's renowned St. John’s University, offers high school students a fantastic opportunity to explore the relationship between media and society — and to discover the exciting world of mass communications.
Guided by the award-winning professors in St. John’s Division of Mass Communication, you will benefit from an interactive curriculum that helps you to develop and practice essential skills needed for success in the media industry. Choose your own area of concentration. Gain a head-start in your media career by examining the five- step film development process, or practicing the art of communication and journalism through the lens of current events.
Your time at NYLF Film & Journalism will result in a tangible portfolio, a fully edited short interview for a documentary film, or a feature story for a TV news segment, that you can use when applying for college or a job in the field.
The National Association of Secondary School Principals has placed this program on the 2018-19 NASSP List of Approved Contests, Programs, and Activities for Students.
