SMPA is honored to host and co-sponsor this year’s JCamp for minority high school journalists. 41 students from across the country have won a spot and will be coming to SMPA to learn all the ins and outs of the field from professional journalists.
The group is in need of student volunteers who are good at video editing in iMovie or Final Cut Pro to assist the high school “campers” with their basic video projects. No compensation is available, but the students will truly appreciate your help. You could help inspire someone into becoming a professional journalist too!
Qualifications: Basic video editing skills. You can sign up for one or more than one shift, or part of a shift.
Help is needed the following days:
Sunday, June 23
The kids will be coming back from the field around 3pm. From 3 to 5pm two people are needed to help them transfer video so they can start to transcribe and begin their scripts.
