The JEA Multicultural Commission partners with the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund and the Newspaper Association of America Foundation to run a day-long workshop during each JEA convention for new advisers.

The emphasis for the academy is for advisers who teach in schools with a large minority population and/or minority advisers.

This program is one of the ways the mentoring program identifies potential mentees.

Linda Shockley (Dow Jones Newspaper Fund), Sandy Woodcock (Newspaper Association of America Foundation) and Steve O'Donoghue (California Journalism Institute) confer during the Outreach Academy.
