Boomer Reporting Corps
The Boomer Reporting Corps (BRC), was a special initiative of Encore Leadership Corps, provided specialized mentoring and general skill-building workshops to Mainers over the age of 50. This effort, which was designed to encourage older adults throughout Maine to become citizen journalists, was undertaken in response to a growing interest among our membership in creating community news outlets, including newsletters, blogs, websites, and columns in local newspapers. This website serves as an archive for the BRC work.
Funding for the Boomer Reporting Corps was provided by The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Maine Community Foundation, and The Atlantic Philanthropies.
