Every year, high school and college students from the Urban Foundation's Kid City program organize a neighborhood family festival in a parking lot in downtown LA. It is both a leadership development program, in which kids take the lead, and a fundraiser for Kid City's youth college access and completion program. The event takes place on August 6th in downtown Los Angeles. Kid City provides a means to get into college and complete college for very low income students, most of whom are the first in their families to have a college opportunity. These are wonderful kids from central and south Los Angeles, and this year we are celebrating our first college graduates!
We are looking for a designer who can work with a group of high school and college students to develop a flyer, logo, and social media graphics for the event. We involve students and put them in charge of all we do, with adults acting as resources. This is an opportunity for the students to learn about graphic design, publicity, and marketing, as well as to develop a great set of graphics.
This is a wonderful youth program, and we are on a tight budget, so we are looking for a person who can donate their time and expertise. And, we appreciate good design! Please contact Anne Hawthorne as soon as possible if you might be able to donate in this way. Thank you!
If you can help us in other ways to market or promote the event, we would also love it, as long as you know in advance that when we say the budget is tight, we really mean it. Thank you again!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
