Russell’s Roving Reporters is a digital media production and leadership program for elementary and middle school students. It was founded in 2005 by Mr. Russell, a former Technology teacher at Silver Ridge Elementary. It was designed to help students practice leadership skills while learning how to produce videos for the school’s live morning announcements. Since its inception, over 600 students have participated in the program.

Russell Roving Reporters Classes

There have been a total of 14 classes of students that participated in the Russell’s Roving Reporters program. This resulted in over 300 students learning how to produce videos while working in an environment that promotes leadership and teamwork. We are expanding our program to target schools in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach County. This means partnering with school districts, aftercare programs, and nonprofit organizations. 

Our program consists of online tutorials for students and teachers, a weekly show highlighting student productions, workshops and summer camps for students.
