this project will involve:
--------------------

--> individuals and small teams
--> typing up and/or audio/video recording interviews
--> with homeless people
--> so that the rest of the city can better understand them.

these people have some fascinating stories. i think some other people would like to read them.


the next meeting:
--------------------

--> Sunday, March 5th
--> 4 p.m.
--> Harvest Urban Market Cafe
--> 191 8th Street (at Howard)
--> In San Francisco's SOMA district.


agenda: 30 minute orientation, optional 2-hour training
--------------------

Individuals that are still interested can then do any of the following:

* Volunteer immediately for non-field work. We need individuals that are willing to edit, post and manage the site.

* Attend a 2-hour formalized training and neighborhood tour immeditely after the break. (FIELD volunteers MUST complete the formal training before they may begin to conduct interviews as part of the project.)

* Attend a different formal training two to four weeks later (depending on level of interest and availalbe resources).

* Schedule a time for a one-on-one training session if you're unable to attend the sessions.

you can reply to me directly at jonahcash@gmail.com. i welcome all comments, suggestions, questions and salutations.
