The Pulitzer Center education team invites students and their teachers and parents/guardians to join us for a speaker series in which journalists highlight under-reported stories of resilience around the world. At a time when the headlines are dominated by crisis, we will explore stories of hope, joy, and connection while also learning more about how journalists investigate and communicate under-reported stories.

In this webinar, Jaime Joyce will share her reporting on how children learn under conditions of migration and displacement. Jaime will take us to schools in Kenya's Kakuma Refugee Camp, a Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh, and along the U.S.-Mexico border. She will share stories from children she met there about what motivated their journeys across borders, and what their lives have been like along the way.

Jaime Joyce is executive editor at TIME for Kids, TIME magazine’s news edition for students. Her writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, and Washingtonian, and on BuzzFeed and NPR, among other places. Previously, Jaime taught elementary school for seven years.

While this webinar is open to all students as well as their teachers and guardians, it is recommended for grades 4–8.
