Join us for our final Knight funded training opportunity; our two-year grant will conclude this coming February with a re-imagined 11-week training — it's now a five-week project-based program that focuses on harnessing your audience to tell better stories and connect with your community. Stations should come with a project or story idea that we'll work with you to complete over five weeks. We're looking for stations that want to explore the confluence of storytelling and community building.

11-week Intensive Training
We launched our next 11-week Intensive Training in September with 10 stations.  This is our second group in the Knight Foundation supported training initiative – just five more training sessions left!  Apply today for a spot in 2013. 

Thanks to our spring training group we have a better program lined up for the fall. We’ve refocused our photography sessions and added more critiques for stations. Stations that took part in the spring training shared some nice words about our work with them.

“The NPRDS/Knight training proved to be invaluable to our work at KUNC. We not only got the chance to connect with other like minded stations at the leadership conference, but the 11-week training sessions brought both a broad overview of the digital strategy and a practical application of it to our newsroom staff & management.” - Jim Hill, KUNC Digital Media Manager

We’ll continue to update and modify our training curriculum to better serve stations!
