Project NIA is seeking a couple of volunteers who are interested in documenting efforts to interrupt the school to prison pipeline in Chicago. Specifically, we will be producing a report that highlights some of the key accomplishments by local students, community members, parents, educators, and advocates to address the school-to-prison pipeline (STPP) in Chicago.
The report will be released in early October in time for the National Week of Action Against School Pushout.
What We Need:
Interviewers — These volunteers will set up and conduct in person and phone interviews with key stakeholders in Chicago who are addressing the school-to-prison pipeline. These interviews will mostly happen in August.
Transcribers — These volunteers will transcribe interviews.
Filmmakers/Videographers — These volunteers will participate in some in-person interviews and will create a short 5 minute video documenting some of the key accomplishments in the effort to end the STPP in Chicago.
Ideal volunteers are self-starters, can work independently, have good communications skills, and care about the issue. If interested, please contact Mariame at firstname.lastname@example.org.
