About

Does your your speaking voice sound like an authentic-American-male-college-student? Can you enunciate clearly and project your voice with enthusiasm and still sound genuine? Or do you know someone you can record that satisifies the requirements. Improve your skills, build your resume, and portfolio while helping to end poverty in the U.S.

Organization
App to Succeed, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, intends to end poverty and narrow the income gap in the U.S. by engaging at-risk Americans in effective, comprehensive information on personal finance and other relevant topics so they have the knowledge they need to become financially self-sufficient and successful.

Project
The current project, is a unique, web-accessed, learning experience; designed to engage 16-19-year-olds in highly visual, interactive content that is personalized to each teen’s interests, goals, abilities and learning styles. The content is the equivalent of a high school course in personal finance and much more.

Assignment
You will play the role ( or record someone who plays the role) of a male guide, in your early twenties, who informally helps a teen through two of the six segments of the program. Your voice must be genuine, and easy to understand (no heavy accents or dialects). Record your voice, using a script with the director's written direction to give you an idea of how the lines are intended to be delivered. Or improvise using your own words.

Requirements
-Have your own recording equipment. You computer or phone with a mike and recording capabilities may be used as long as it produces a quality recording.
-Have a quiet place to record.
- Have the ability to enunciate words clearly and project them with authentic enthusiasm without sounding
artificial.
-A background or interest in theater arts or media announcer is preferable.
-Be willing to record some lines more than once to get the desired result.
-Maturity to work virtually. (Or you have the option to record at headquarters in Stamford, CT.)
-Prefer a background or interest in performing arts or broadcast media announcing.
-Meet deadline for recording, no later than May 30th.

Compensation
As a young nonprofit we cannot yet pay our interns but we can offer other forms of compensation.
-If you deliver an exceptional result, exceeding expectations, and good enough to use in the program, you will receive a letter of reference, written and signed by the CEO, plus:
-If you fulfill your commitment to the project, your name will be acknowledged on the Volunteer page of the organization's website and acknowledged in the trailer of the program when it is published.
