Be a part of our video film team and get experience you can put on your resume
We’re putting together a crew to work on cutting edge video content promoting LightHouse programs and services. The LightHouse film crew will assist with production work, set design, transportation, operations tasks and more. An initial shoot will be conducted on an all-volunteer basis, with the chance of paid future work for crew members who excel. Ideal candidates are film school students, those with prior video experience, or those simply enthusiastic about getting into the field of video production. Experience is appreciated, but not required. Blind and visually impaired volunteers enthusiastic about getting into this line of work are encouraged to apply. Interviews start next month so apply now to be considered. Volunteers will be selected based solely on attitude and availability. Deadline to apply for this exciting opportunity is July 22, 2015.
East Bay Personal Services Volunteer
Interested in volunteering, but not psyched about commuting to San Francisco to do it? We have eager East Bay students waiting to be matched with you. By becoming a Personal Services Volunteer, you’ll be working with LightHouse students on a one-on-one basis to help them be more efficient in their lives. Typical tasks might include reading mail, grocery shopping (with or without the student), acting as a sighted guide at social or cultural events, transportation and more. Apply today to be considered.
Do you love to drive the highways and byways in and outside the Bay Area? We offer our blind and low vision students a myriad of fun outings and special events each month and need a friendly and responsible driver to lead the way. If you are at least 21 years old, maintain a valid Class B or C (or higher) California commercial driver license, have infectious good energy and a bit of free time, we’d love to talk to you. You must have a clean driving history. Prior experience with people with disabilities is a plus, but not required.
Getting started with these or any of our many volunteer opportunities is super easy with several ways to apply: contact Justine Harris-Richburgh at email@example.com or 415-694-7320 or register and schedule your interview online by going to https://lighthouse-sf.org/donate/volunteer/.
