Follow South Jersey is a hyper-local news and digital advocacy platform with the mission of informing and engaging the community. By shining a spotlight on the plight, challenges, successes, and needs of people living in South Jersey, they are committed to serving as a platform for diverse voices. 

Thanks to a generous grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Follow South Jersey is able to generate stories by employing student journalists to write and create a significant portion of the site's content. The student journalists are selected from schools in our area and contribute content by working as paid interns for the site, receiving valuable feedback and work experience along the way.


Follow South Jersey is currently seeking Student Journalist Interns to help grow their team! Learn more about how you can become an Intern and apply below:
