For the TheNewsOutlet.org, a multimedia investigative journalism project run by college students and professional editors

To keep citizens up to date on local issues, The Raymond John Wean Foundation will expand TheNewsOutlet.org, a collaborative, investigative reporting platform run by college students and professional editors. The project will use the existing model in Youngstown, Ohio, which crowdsources story topics from and about the community, and expand it to other universities and media partners throughout the state. The foundation hopes that greater interaction and increased local content will foster solutions to neighborhood problems.
