Commonpoint Queens

Inspired by Brandon Stanton's Humans of New York, Commonpoint Queens seeks to launch its own photoblog series: Mensches of Commonpoint. As part of this project, the volunteer will take photos and interview staff members, volunteers, and program participants of Commonpoint Queens, and work alongside our marketing and communications team to share their stories. Prospective volunteers must be extremely passionate about storytelling, have excellent written and verbal communications skills, and possess the ability to function cohesively with a team.

Interested candidates should email Isaac Adlerstein, Director of Volunteer Services, at iadlerstein@commonpointqueens.org.
