Mentors

More than 250 high school students competed to secure their place as a News Day student reporter in 2012 and had the rare opportunity to work with CBC and The Vancouver Sun staff.

CBC hosts, reporters, producers, technical staff and The Vancouver Sun columnists and reporters volunteer their skills and talent to help student reporters get their stories to broadcast, online and in print for News Day in B.C.

This unique opportunity to work one on one with CBC and The Vancouver Sun teams has always been one of the most memorable experiences for the student reporters.
