“Gen Y Online,” a project guided by Journalism Broadcast professor Cheryl Vallender and program coordinator Nicole Blanchett-Neheli in their Online News Production class, has launched their latest website titled “Gen Y Chances.”


The project focuses on how gender, race, income or mental illness might impact your chances for success as a Gen Y (Generation Y). Students Nick Kattis and Maria Ramage worked primarily on the website which also saw contributions from many colleagues in the class.

One unique aspect featured a student in the class who has Aspergers Syndrome interviewing another Sheridan student who has autism. They spoke about their living and learning experiences.

The website, along with this terrific interview, can be seen here.

Last year a similar project by Gen Y Online titled “DDR” (Digitally Dependent Relationships) was shortlisted for the International Data Journalism Awards. They faced off against news organizations such as Mother Jones and the New York Times.


Congratulations to this group and best of luck moving forward!
