Through local chapter events and our annual conference, the CAJ provides journalism students with opportunities to meet and network with established professionals in the field. Our workshops on data journalism, access to information and ethics offer students practical tools and techniques to succeed in the field. Plus, we offer significant discount on conference passes to student members!

Student members are encouraged to sign up for the CAJ's mentorship program, which connects student and emerging journalists with established professionals working in radio, television, digital, and print publications across the country.

Celebrating student journalism is important to us, which is why we invite students to bring their work out of the classroom and into the spotlight through the CAJ / CNW GROUP STUDENT AWARD OF EXCELLENCE. Participants have their work reviewed by a panel of working journalists and winners are presented at the CAJ Awards ceremony.
