The Journalism Education Association relies on the hard work of volunteer members to accomplish its mission. Whether you just joined JEA or you're a veteran part of our organization, there are always opportunities to become more involved in the scholastic journalism field on a national level.
Volunteer your time and expertise through committees, programs and publications. Complete this short form to indicate your interest in serving JEA.
Other ways to support and grow the scholastic journalism community:
- Get certified. Certified journalism educators show a commitment to the profession by having national credence given to the work they've accomplished.
- Attend a national convention or the JEA Advisers Institute. The value of face-to-face collaboration and networking can't be overstated, and the training and resources gained from attending conferences is unmatched. If you have knowledge to share with students or other teachers, you can also volunteer to speak.
- Serve on the JEA leadership team. JEA holds elections every three years, and you can express your interest by reaching out to the executive director.
- Donate to JEA. You can designate your donated amount to a specific fund, or as a tribute to honor the memory of someone.
JEA is committed to serving its members and helping navigate the challenges of a 21st century newsroom, but we are stronger together. For more information on how to get involved, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
