Expert Video Editor
Are you an excellent video editor with creative skills? Do you enjoy telling stories through short video clip? YesLiberia needs a very creative, enthusiastic and motivated person to strategize and create weekly organic videos that would help us tell our stories better.
The world of effective presentations and messaging is becoming much broader than simply transmitting information or creating identity. That’s because the way we communicate is changing. One major shift is the prevalence of videos. In the next minute, about 35 hours of footage will be uploaded to YouTube. Worldwide, over 600 billion multimedia text messages were sent in 2020 alone. And chances are you’ve received at least one video from a friend or coworker this week. We’ve recognized this fact at YesLiberia and would really need someone to help get our messages across through videos.
The Opportunity: We are seeking a gifted individual, with unmatched talent, to use our existing short clips to produce inspiring and compelling videos and narratives that would trigger viewer’s actions.
This is an unpaid volunteer position; but if you are a student, you may be able to use this opportunity for possible credits hours toward graduation. We can work with you on that possibility.
Skills: The ideal candidate MUST have excellent and creative video editing skills; and has experience writing or developing awesome scripts for video narration.

Conviction created YesLiberia. Daily the needs of underprivileged are ignored. We ignore their struggles because it’s easier to deal with the more important things in our lives-- like climbing the corporate ladder and saving money so we don’t become indigent. And some of us ignore their challenges because they bring back unpleasant memories we seek to repress. But disregarding the plight of the underprivileged yields no resolution. Then certain things happen to remind us their struggles exist no matter how hard we try to pretend our needs surpass theirs.
Jallah was convicted by several of those things over a short period of time. The prostitution of children in Thailand reminded him of Liberia. The rape and war in Congo reminded him of Liberia. The genocide in Rwanda reminded him of Liberia. He remembered his underprivileged past--a past where he was seen as less than elite based on his tribal and economic status and where his education came as a gift from the United Methodist Church.
Reminded, he became convicted to act and YesLiberia was founded to educate and help underprivileged Liberians whose plight he intimately understood.
YesLiberia is a 501c3 charity organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service since July 2009. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowable by law. YesLiberia is also registered at four government agencies in Liberia.
