This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


Job Title: Visual Media Volunteer

Gain videography experience, see your work on a professional website, and make a positive impact for an important social issue!


Project: Create a "Video Snapshot" of a child who is waiting for an adoptive home. These are short (1-3 minute) segments that showcase the child’s personality, communication style, interests, talents, etc. We have found video to be the most effective way of genuinely depicting what makes each child unique. These videos are uploaded to our website to be accessed by potential adoptive families, allowing them to become familiar with a particular child and hopefully sparking their interest in learning more. Examples of a video snapshot can be found on our website at

Agency: The Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to find safe, nurturing, permanent families for every child in Massachusetts foster care that cannot be reunited with his/her birth family. We do this by recruiting, educating, supporting and advocating for families throughout the adoption process.

Commitment: Film at least one video snapshot. Volunteer should be able to manage the technical aspects of filming independently. Volunteer able to manage post-production independently is a plus. Videographers are credited on our website, and footage may be used for a personal portfolio.

*Please note that this volunteer opportunity will require travel within Massachusetts unless you are interested in remotely editing. *
