Five Wards Media, in partnership with Newark News & Stories, has embarked on a transformative journey to amplify the voices and talents of Newark's youth, laying the foundation for a resilient and inclusive community narrative. Our mission is to create a nurturing ecosystem where Newark's young people, especially those navigating the challenges of poverty and violence, can thrive through creative expression and media arts. #OurStoriesBelongToUs

Your financial contribution is pivotal to realizing this vision. It enables us to offer comprehensive training, mentorship, paid fellowships, and internships, equipping Newark's youth with the media skills necessary to share their stories and contribute to their community and culture. Your support helps us produce quality news and information that informs and empowers our community, ensuring that every voice is heard and valued.

As part of our commitment to fostering a more equitable media landscape, we are proud to continue our work within the inaugural cohort of the Tiny News Collective. This initiative supports voices historically excluded from media and media ownership. Five Wards Media and Newark News & Stories are fiscally sponsored by the Tiny News Collective, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, ensuring that your contribution is not just an investment in our mission but also in the future of media diversity and social justice.
