Media Consultants (MCs)

Program Summary

Use media skills (photography, graphic design, writing, social media) to spread the word about VISAS and VISAS’ amazing participants!

Program Outline

What do MCs do?

MCs assist the VISAS Media, Outreach, and Volunteer (MOR) intern, working on photography, multimedia projects, and social media outreach. Among other duties, MCs photograph VISAS events as their schedule allows, create designs in Canva to promote events, and assist the MOR intern in interviewing for Humans of VISAS social media posts. MCs are invited to share their creativity and innovation in special projects as needed.

Time Commitment and Schedule

There is no specific schedule for MCs, but expect to volunteer about 1-2 hours per week. Most of the work MCs do is completed independently. MCs are expected to attend VISAS events occasionally, including VISAS Café.

Position Requirements

English does NOT need to be your first language in order to volunteer as a Media Consultant. An interest in media outreach, as well as getting to know people from other cultures and to share one’s own culture are the only requirements.
