After a year of developing skills in writing, photography, video/audio and reporting for The Seattle Globalist, our youth apprentices are proud to share the following projects with you.

These in-depth pieces were dreamed up, designed and reported by each apprentice on a topic they are passionate about. Now equipped with some serious reporting skills, we know these young storytellers will continue to make incredible works of journalism.
