Our1World and the Friends of Hue Foundation are joining hands to create a health-related public service video training workshop and production program. Young folks, ages 14 – 22, are invited to participate. Volunteers will be trained on how to use multimedia to tell effective and compelling health stories. The stories and additional media created in the course of the program will be distributed to health clinics associated with the Vietnamese American Non-Governmental Organizations Network. Equipment will be provided and a certificate of merit will be awarded to volunteers upon successful completion of the program.
Although the program is specifically designed for 14 – 22 year olds, other volunteer opportunities for those out of this age bracket are also available. These opportunities include: mentoring Vietnamese American youths to create public service announcements about health, translating, web and blog design, research and communications, and traveling to Vietnam this summer to work directly with youth there. See the call for participation below for more details.
Applications are due February 28, 5 p.m. Vietnam time, so act quickly.
It sounds like a great opportunity for transcontinental cultural exchange and health development. We hope you’ll consider it!
