The L.A. Times High School Insider youth journalism program is calling for ambitious student journalists to join the 8th High School Insider summer internship cohort. Join a team of passionate young reporters and spend your summer telling the stories that matter most to young people. 

As a HS Insider intern, you will have the opportunity to experience life as a professional journalist: covering breaking news, crafting feature enterprise stories and experimenting in multimedia storytelling. During the six-week internship program, interns will pursue stories with the support of mentors, extensive training and workshops from an award-winning newsroom.

The six-week internship will start Monday, June 26 and end Friday, August 4. Interns will work 30 hours a week — Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a one-hour lunch break. Interns will be paid $16 per hour.

The internship is open to high school students across the United States, including graduating seniors in the class of 2023. Interns must be eligible to work in the United States.

The internship will be a hybrid format. Most work will be done remotely with some in-person opportunities. Students residing outside of Los Angeles will be fully remote.

Find the application with instructions here. The deadline to submit applications has been extended. Applications are due Sunday, April 23 at 11:59 p.m. (PDT). 

Please email with any questions.
