Neighborhood Coalition for Shelter, Inc.
The Neighborhood Coalition for Shelter (NCS) is committed to ending homelessness by providing men, women and young adults aging out of foster care with housing and support that can transform their lives. Established in 1982 by religious and community leaders on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, NCS was founded on the premise that homelessness is the responsibility of the entire community. Its goal is to provide the resources people need to live with dignity and independence in safe and stable housing.
This year, 2012, is NCS’s 30th Anniversary. We are planning a couple of different events for the year. At one of those events, we plan to focus more on NCS’s past (while at the other, more on it’s future). Part of the historical focus will be an oral history video of five to seven minutes in duration.
We are seeking a part-time unpaid intern to interview some founding (and other) board members, neighborhood collaborators and original residents and put together what we hope will be a compelling video about the work that we have done.
We hope to show the video at a spring event that could take place as early as March or as late as May, so it is critical that this person be able to start immediately and devote as much time as possible as quickly as possible to complete the video. If this student is interested in working with us further, we would be very pleased to continue the internship (at a more leisurely pace!) to develop and create other videos that could be used to educate the public about our work and garner support. (Perhaps we could focus a second video on our residents.)
Successful candidates will have some experience creating short videos; have the technical skills necessary to do the job as well as the equipment and be outgoing, professional and willing to learn about NCS’s work and constituents.
