The Yale Daily News Summer Journalism Program is a one-week intensive course in journalism for high-school students. The program is run entirely by undergraduate staff members of the Yale Daily News. During the course of the week, high-school students participate in workshops on the fundamentals of reporting and writing, attend lectures by guest speakers from major national publications and work hands-on reporting a story. The week culminates with the production of an issue of the Yale Daily News.

The program lasts from 1 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. each day. The dates of the 2020 program will be August 17-21.

The Yale Daily News Summer Journalism Program is free to all participants from New Haven public schools. We ask that all other participants pay $150 for their week spent with the Yale Daily News during the program. The News uses this money to help keep our newspaper free for all readers and fund various initiatives within our organization, such as reporting fellowships or financial stipends for low-income students on the the Yale Daily News.
