Volunteers needed! Help edit videos from previous webinars and interviews. Add titles and end credits and some for length. We also need volunteers to help create short clips out of longer videos. Video editing software will be your own licensed or freeware products or can be provided. Average video length is 30-60 minutes for this work.
Volunteers accepted on a part-time, virtual basis. Deadlines tend to be flexible, but we ask that work you agree to take on be completed within a two-week period.
Full-length edited videos will be uploaded to our YouTube channel. Clips will be used on social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, or TikTok. Editing skills for all of those platforms are appreciated, but we are willing to train and learn together.
Video content may include sensitive or triggering topics such as suicide prevention, substance use disorder, self-harm, and similar issues. Our organization recognizes racism as a mental health issue and discusses race equity and racism openly. We are an ally organization with the LGBTQ+ community and strongly support youth voices in our work. Our work in health policy will lead to video content sometimes discussing mental health policy changes with legislators and politicians at the local, state, and occasionally federal level.
