2010 YouthImpact SurveyAugust 2011Journalism Program
SurveyThe McCormick Journalism Program earlier this yearconducted a survey of its news literacy and youthjournalism grantees to determine the impact ofprograms in Chicago.
Methodology MF staff created a 12-question Survey Monkey questionnaire that asked about partnerships with high schools, youth reached, teachers trained and neighborhoods where programs take place. MF staff collected school data from the CPS Office of Performance. MF contracted the Urban Data Visualization Lab at the University of Illinois at Chicago to produce maps using ArcGIS.
Collective Impact Some 23 youth journalism and news literacy organizations were surveyed:• Grantees served 6,874 young people in the Chicago area.• These students live in 43 of the city’s 77 neighborhoods, with the most activity in Roseland, Englewood, Grand Boulevard, Humboldt Park and North Lawndale.• Grantees reached students in 87 Chicago schools and 23 other schools in the suburbs.• Grantees trained 153 teachers.
News Literacy &Youth JournalismFor the purposes of our grantmaking clusters, wealso broke down the survey results into twocategories.
News Literacy 2,484 students in Chicago were directly reached by news literacy programs. News literacy programs were available in 32 schools. 53 teachers received news literacy training.
Youth Journalism 4,390 youth in the Chicago area were directly reached by MF youth journalism grantees. Nearly all of McCormick’s 2010 youth journalism grantees have infused a strong news literacy component into their programs. Youth Journalism programs operate in 78 schools. About 100 teachers received youth journalism training.
