Citizen One Inc. is a NonProfit Organization.

Citizen One Inc. is a non-profit organization, currently managed by a three-person Board of Directors. Our 501-c3 status is currently pending.

Citizen One Inc. is responsible only for the training, enablement and support of all content, editorial, reporting, and story telling. All editorial decisions are made at the local level. All content is produced locally by a team of students, civil servants, citizens, and other contributors. All contributors to Citizen One must adhere to the Society of Professional Journalists Standards of Ethics.

Citizen One Inc. is also responsible for the educational components of our mission. This includes the development of a K-12 Media Literacy curriculum, Professional Development materials for teachers and other Bureau Chiefs, Onboarding & Training for new bureaus, the Journalism Advertising and Media education program for Citizen One student reporters in grades 9-12, and the Citizen Stealth Education Program.

The technology, infrastructure, and other back-office business functions for Citizen One are handled via a for-profit joint venture controlled by Citizen One Inc. This enables the organization to fund itself through a variety of different sources, but most importantly, it decouples the influence of profits from journalism, and enables our Journalism and Education team to focus on doing great journalism and education, without having to pay for operations costs.
