Chronicles of the Homeless

We are currently recruitng volunteers for a new project that we think will be rewarding, fun and potentially important.

This new initiative involves a individuals and small teams writing/recording interviews with homeless people so that the rest of the city can help figure out how to help.

30-Minute Info Session, 30-Minute Orientation

AGENDA: 30-minute general session, optional 30-minute orientation

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

(1) Volunteer immediately for non-field work. We need individuals that are willing to edit, post and manage the site.
(2) Attend a 2-hour formalized training and neighborhood tour beginning at 5:15 p.m., immediately following the orientation. (FIELD volunteers MUST complete either a group or specially scheduled individual training session BEFORE they may begin to conduct interviews as part of the project.)
(3) Attend a different formal training four to six weeks later (depending on level of interest and availalbe resources).
(4) Schedule a time for a one-on-one training session if you're unable to attend the sessions.
