About the program

ThreeSixty Journalism, a nonprofit program of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, uses the principles of strong writing and reporting to help diverse Minnesota youth tell their stories. ThreeSixty Journalism offers high school students high-impact summer journalism camps and school-year programming at the University of St. Thomas.

Twenty-four high school students who completed one of ThreeSixty's summer camps in 2015 produced reported stories, several of which are published in these pages. Their stories are centered on the theme "Preparing for life after high school."
