option3 began as a policy blog in 2012.  In 2014, option3 began posting research interviews, initiated a smudge program, and began developing a youth newsmagazine.  In 2015, option3 constituted an advisory committee.  In 2016, option3 obtained fiscal sponsorship  from Planetwork NGO, Inc.

While option3 is not a traditional journalism outlet, our team practices journalism and some of us have apprenticed in journalism or completed a journalism degree.  Regarding ethics, option3 looks to our own experience base and to the Society of Professional Journalists and The Center for Journalism Ethics
