LEADER OPPORTUNITY: Minecraft Tour Guide for Washington Mall and Racial Equity

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: L.A. Works



WHAT: Guide and support volunteers as they immerse themselves in the virtual Minecraft March on Washington exhibit! This exhibit was created to celebrate leaders in the ongoing fight for racial justice and increase the awareness and advocacy of the LA community. Our amazing volunteers helped us create this vast world as part of our MLK Day of Service, and now we need your help to share it with others!

THE VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY YOU'D LEAD:

Serve as a tour guide in the Minecraft Java universe and provide tech support for our Minecraft Washington D.C exhibit.

Help volunteer guests explore the historic 1963 March on Washington and introduce them to activists who have paved the way for change against systemic racism, as well as modern-day activists who continue Dr. King's legacy.

Reach out to groups of volunteers who might be interested in taking advantage of this one-of-a-kind educational experience, and invite them to a group tour.

AS THE PROJECT LEADER, YOU'D BE RESPONSIBLE FOR: You will first be given a tour of the exhibit, introduced to non-player character versions of activists, and will be allowed to explore the world on your own in order to familiarize themselves with the space.

Each month, you will give the tour and provide tech support to volunteers in need of assistance. A script for the tour will be provided. You will meet the guests in Zoom to give a short introduction about the exhibit and troubleshoot any technical issues. Afterward, you will meet guests in the virtual space, give the tour, introduce the activists, and support guests in building an activism-centric model of their own. The consistent focus of the tour will be spotlighting heroes both past and present of the racial justice movement.

REQUIREMENTS:

Attend a virtual L.A. Works training

Commit to leading the project for 6 months
