Volunteer with Knowbility
November 12, 2019
I'm Jayne Cravens, and I work for a nonprofit in Austin, Texas called Knowbility. This nonprofit advocates for digital inclusion - for all digital resources, particularly those shared online, to be fully usable by people with disabilities. Knowbility was founded in 1998.
Knowbility has a few onsite events throughout the year and would like to do a better job of having video from these events - not entire recordings of the events but, rather, clips from the events. I wondered if our needs might present meaningful volunteering or internship opportunities for your students.
We've been quite DIY regarding recording video from events, which you can see via your YouTube channel:
Examples of volunteering opportunities we have for video recorders/editors/producers:
This Friday, Nov. 15, we will have an event where participants in a global hackathon we host annually, the Accessibility Internet Rally, will present three-minute "drop the mic" moments. We would like to have quality recordings of these presentations (there will be less than 10).
We have other events where we would love to interview participants and then to splice these clips together in videos that help promote digital inclusion, like our annual AccessU event, which you can read about via http://www.knowbility.org
We're happy to sign off on any paperwork that might be needed for a student participating for class credit, and I would take care of the captioning we need on any resulting videos (all of our published, public videos must be captioned, for obvious reasons, given our mission).
