Our mission is to identify, train, mentor and launch a new group of community reporters who will report and document news, public events and explore the public policies that shape the City of Asbury Park.

We aim to create an incubator for emerging community reporters and local media makers. The work our community reporters produce over the course of the training sessions — news articles, news broadcasts for radio, news videos and documentary short subjects, podcasts, and social media posts — will be published and disseminated through a website and our network of local media partners.
