We’re in need of video editors looking to make a difference by editing recorded clips for the organization’s promotional, documentary, and explainer-type videos.
Are you skilled and want to use those skills to make a difference? YesLiberia is a non-profit organization focused on improving global citizenship by providing service-learning opportunities, health and education services, and small infrastructural improvements to communities in Liberia. We need to improve our visual presence to encourage volunteers to donate to and assist our cause. The projects we hope to complete are ideal for those with excellent videography skills who want to use these skills to help the youth of Liberia.
Together we’ll turn ideas into messages. We’ve had some ideas in the past that we’d like to implement, such as sharing clips of daily life in Liberia that would be filmed by Liberian children themselves, explaining how donations to YesLiberia will cover students’ school fees, or providing solar lantern for students currently on our tuition assistance program. We want you to help us come up with more effective ways of reaching out to possible volunteers and donors, and together we’ll create striking videos that tell an important story. Here is an example of one of our videos: https://vimeo.com/178149877
You’ll play an important role by applying your skills and working alongside other volunteers committed to helping the children of Liberia. Some of your projects may include:
· Editing existing footages and producing short promotional clips and documentaries.
· Possibly recording your own clips at our events.
· Working with staff and volunteers to develop YesLiberia’s visual identity.
· Brainstorming new, exciting ideas for videos.
