Volunteer Mentor Application
Thank you for your interest in serving and supporting youth media literacy and justice with Reel Grrls!
We welcome volunteers with a wide variety of skills and experience, including specialized filmmaking skills such as cinematography, lighting, audio, editing, as well as youth development, media literacy, justice, gender studies, visual arts, and performance. Reel Grrls centers marginalized voices to create a more equitable media landscape, and highly encourages women of color, gender non-conforming folks, immigrants of all abilities to apply.
All Volunteer Mentors must complete a background check and a Mentor Camp before being able to mentor youth in any Reel Grrls program or production.
Volunteer Program Mentors are at the core of Reel Grrls programming! Program Mentors are required to be available to work for the duration of a program (programs range from 1 afternoon to 12 weeks) to ensure strong relationships that support youth and program success. Program Mentors work on a volunteer basis and are not compensated except in some reel love and appreciation. Program Mentor positions are open to individuals who self-identify as female, transgender, or gender non-conforming.
