La Voz editors to visit New York Times1 min read

La Voz Staff

La Voz has been with De Anza College through sun and rain, literally — because some of the newspapers racks are right out in the open.

Now after all the work and the late nights working to put out the paper, two La Voz staff members are getting the chance to fly to The New York Times and gain experience to better the paper even more.

The two staff members that will be going on this trip are La Voz‘s editor-in-chief Steven Cabana and news editor Pedro Paulo Viegas de Sa.

Cabana and de Sa will attend a full-day symposium to explore the role of the newspaper in a democratic society.

Only American Association of State Colleges institutions partnered with the American Democracy Project have an opportunity to participate in this event. Each school that is eligible to participate can send up two to people.

ADP wants to develop undergraduates who are committed to doing meaningful things for the community, according the ADP Web site.

This initiative involves many campuses and tries to create undergraduates who have a good understanding of what civic engagement means.

Representatives from other student papers will also be at the event and will have the opportunity to work with in the Times newsroom.

Students will meet with editors and other staff of the Times and take part in workshops on editing.

They will be able to be learn from people who make important decisions on what goes into Times as well as from fellow students.

The symposium will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Times headquarters

The trip will last for two days.
