GUIDE ON THE SIDE
VOX volunteers serve as story coaches and mentors, facilitate skill-building sessions, support teens out in the field, copy edit teens’ content, help plan fundraising events and more! We are looking for volunteers with experience in:
-Journalism basics (objectivity, sourcing, interviewing)
-Audio recording and editing
During June and July, we will host three sessions of VOX Media Cafe. Through this safe and experiential-learning opportunity, teens will network with media experts, take field trips to gather footage, visit local media organizations, create comprehensive media packages, and get to know peers from schools all over the city. Volunteers are essential to this program and support teens in building journalism and digital media skills – everything from interviewing to audio production.
VMC Orientation Dates:
Wednesday, May 27, 5:30-7pm
Saturday, May 30, 1-2:30pm
Monday, June 15, 5:30-7pm (for volunteers NOT helping during session 1)
