About Us

Mosaic Journalism Workshop, a non-profit program, was established in 1991 by four journalists - Joe Rodriguez, Donna Kato and Manny Gonzalez of the San Jose Mercury News and Rosana Madrigal of KLIV/KARA radio, who wanted to mentor and inspire future journalists.

From the beginning, The Mercury News,  San Jose State University, Dow Jones News Fund and Latino Journalists of California have committed professional talent and resources to train high school students in journalism for a two-week period.

Mosaic has trained hundreds of high school students, many of whom became professionals in traditional and new media. Mosaic alumni have gone on to work at the San Jose Mercury News, San Francisco Chronicle, NBC-KNTV 11, Los Angeles Times, Atlanta Journal Constitution, Minneapolis Star Tribune and other news media agencies across the country.
