Their flagship program funded by the foundation is the New England High School Journalism Collaborative (NEHSJC), established by Carole Remick in 1987. This amazing program has introduced hundreds of New England high school students to the field of journalism for the last 33 years through workshops and programs.
Students work directly with professional reporters, photographers and editors from New England newspapers and media organizations. The Collaborative’s key program is a week-long workshop in June during which a select group of students report and write their own stories for a laboratory newspaper and a multimedia site. This is an all-expense paid program funded by the foundation.
The program is housed in Weston through a partnership with Regis College which provides the dormitories, function halls, catering and staff. Students work out of a newsroom set up in a computer lab at Simmons University in Boston and assemble material for the newspaper and website. The Boston Globe, another partner, provides professional staff to assist the students along with media professionals from other New England news organizations.

A board of directors is made up of past participants and former colleagues of Carole. The board, along with the managing director, Leah Lamson and the Regis College Carole Remick chair, Colleen Malachowski work tirelessly each year to make sure the program grows and stays current with media trends. They all have one thing in common, the respect and love for the program and for Carole Remick. We thank them for their dedication. Carole would be proud.
