Recruiting Organization: Life Letters

Life Letters is a non-profit organization that works to destigmatize mental illness by posting anonymous letters detailing a mental health struggle one is enduring or has overcome. We receive these letters from the public and sort them by social identity in order to validate our viewer's experiences and help them feel less alone. We also run several projects in an attempt to better the mental state of our neighbors and communities.

We currently have several unpaid, volunteer positions to fill, all of which are listed below. While qualifications vary based on the positions, all Life Letters volunteers must be communicative, passionate, organized, and dependable. Life Letters volunteers work part-time and roughly five hours a week. All positions are remote. If you'd like to contribute in a way that's not specified here, please contact us through our website, life-letters.org.

Artist/Animator- responsibilities include using your own creativity and style in portraying messages and creating mental health-related content for zines and short videos, occasionally based on a specific idea or image.

Visit @LifeLetters on Instagram, TikTok, or YouTube to see the kind of images/videos we create.

Editing: responsibilities include proofreading the letters submitted to us, making sure they’re easily readable but not altering content unless it’s toxic or confusing, adding keywords that describe the social identity of the narrator, including a content warning for things that could trigger a reader, and posting the final version on WordPress with tags and specific formatting.

Research: responsibilities include doing research to create surveys that collect data measuring mental health-related variables--such as happiness or self-care--collecting preexisting data in order to create statistics that support our projects and efforts, and collecting emails for organizations or individuals interested in supporting Life Letters, which might mean crafting spreadsheets with social justice organizations, mental health institutions, or therapy places and their information.

Writing: responsibilities include creating short stories portraying mental health/illness struggles and the societal challenges that come along with it using their own creativity and style. Writers will be able to choose from a list of mental health topics or suggest their own. A direction to take the story in and research surrounding the mental illness/battle will be provided if needed.

Video editing: responsibilities include editing recorded content to cut out mistakes or blips in the film as well as adding subtitles, appropriate music, or nicely timed commentary/memes to enhance the entertainment of the audience.

Visit @LifeLetters on TikTok or YouTube to see the kind of videos we create.

Video content: responsibilities include recording content to post on our channels, like letters or scripts being read or video games being played--specifically Minecraft--and sending it to our video editors.
