Summer Camp Volunteers

Our interactive educational summer camp program focuses on teaching girls fun ways to express themselves through a variety of media and technology projects that include writing, photography, graphic design, filmmaking, radio production, web and app design and more! We are seeking volunteers interested in youth empowerment, media, journalism, storytelling, tech, and community to help Latinitas’ Camp Leaders facilitate and manage summer camps. 

No training is necessary, but teaching, mentoring, and classroom management experience is highly encouraged. All volunteers are required to attend an orientation prior to volunteering.

Club Latinitas Volunteers

Club Latinitas is our longest running program, which implements weekly after-school media and technology enrichment lessons at elementary and middle schools in the Austin Independent School District (AISD). Club Latinitas serves girls ages 9 – 14 and focuses on encouraging girls to build confidence through creative multimedia expression. Girls in our clubs will participate in hands-on activities such as filmmaking, production, robotics, virtual reality, video game design, and much more. Club Latinitas Volunteers will help us encourage girls to express themselves in a safe and positive environment. Additional tasks will include:

  • Assist Club Leader with team-building activities
  • Guide girls through media and tech activities and help with brainstorming sessions
  • Assist Club Leader with attendance taking and keeping track of time
  • Document Club by taking photos and/or video of girls in club
  • Monitor equipment usage and ensure they are being shut down properly
  • Help Club Leaders with behavioral management and encourage positive team-work

We ask that Club Latinitas Volunteers commit to at least one after-school program for the fall and/or spring semester (September – December / February – May). Each after-school program meets on a weekly basis from 3:30pm – 5:30pm.

To sign up as a Club Latinitas Volunteer for the fall 2018, please send your resume and fall schedule to bris@latinitasmagazine.org.
