Alfred Friendly Press Partners (AFPP) is a nonprofit that bonds with journalists and news organizations from information-hungry societies and prepares them to practice professional, ethical and innovative journalism. It accomplishes its mission through hands-on training in U.S. and international newsrooms and within the Missouri School of Journalism.

ASPR led the strategy and execution of the AFPP’s annual gala dinner at the National Press Club, where journalists were honored for the successful completion of their fellowships. The event included remarks from Karen DeYoung, an award-winning journalist for the Washington Post, as well as the introduction of development techniques new to AFPP.

Further work has included sharing the story of founder Alfred Friendly with Washington Post columnist John Kelly and additional outreach efforts.
