Use your audio skills to amplify the voices of public school students in San Francisco!
826 Valencia, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping under-resourced students with their writing skills, seeks volunteers to help edit podcasts created during our one-day field trips. At these trips, students come to 826 Valencia to learn about podcasts, write an episode, record, and complete online publishing and audio editing activities. We then edit and produce the podcasts, selecting some pieces to give additional sound treatment to. You can check out our featured podcasts here.
Our production team seeks volunteers to record students in approximately ten minute intervals during the afternoon session of our field trips (usually from 12:45 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.) During the recording session, you would record students as they read from their written piece at least twice.
Our production team also seeks volunteers to do basic edits to the students' short pieces so that we can publish our students' work in a timely manner. While we do our simple editing with Reaper's audio software, any digital audio workstation will work for our purposes.
If you'd like to learn more about one or both of these volunteer opportunities, please email Programs Associate, Ricardo Cruz, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
