Youth Journalism International, Inc., which has been training young reporters since 1994, is preparing to ask the Internal Revenue Service to recognize it as a 501(c)(3) corporation. What that would mean, once the IRS approves, is that donors would be able to get tax benefits for their charitable contributions.
This is a major, exciting step forward for YJI. We'll provide much more information in the weeks and months ahead.
We plan to reach out to teens and other young people, of course, but also to parents, teachers, professionals and experts who can assist us in making YJI better than ever.
If you're in a position to offer a helping hand, we'd love to hear from you.
