Volunteer Opportunities
Youtube Crew will produce 5-minute preview clips with highlights from our 45-75 min interviews. There will be one or two videos for each interview. These will be more "quick and dirty" for our Youtube channel and will include a small soundtrack, some b-roll, but will mostly be direct footage of people talking.

Educator's ToolKit Crew who will be working on 10-15 minute videos in more of a varietie documentary style. They will potentially include more b-roll, stock footage, infographics, etc. and generally be more of a finished product.
