AMI is hiring youth producers for our second semester of the All Access Reproductive Healthcare project!
We're looking for folks aged 14-22 to tell stories about access to reproductive healthcare in eastern Kentucky! This is a great opportunity to learn about media production-- from podcasting to video production and photography.
All Access EKY is a partnership of Appalshop, The Kentucky Health Justice Network, and Power to Decide, supported by the Educational Foundation of America. Together we are leading a project that works with ten Southeastern KY counties to build support for programs and services to ensure young people have access to the full range of contraceptive methods. Studies have shown that when young people have access to and correct information about birth control and reproductive health, as well as the opportunity to make decisions about their future, reductions in unplanned pregnancy are sure to follow.
*8 week paid fellowship to produce audio, video, and written pieces telling the stories of birth control access, reproductive health care, and medical work happening here in Eastern Kentucky.
* Up to 5 applicants will be chosen from the region to work intensively with All Access EKY/Appalshop staff. Over the course of the Spring semester we will explore the basics of video and audio production, view and discuss documentary video, and learn how to produce and distribute meaningful media about community issues.
* The multimedia work produced during our spring semester has the potential to be seen by audiences across the United States, and abroad.
* Working with All Access EKY can be both a challenging and rewarding experience. It is important that you are interested in exploring your creativity through media making. You must:
1) be a responsible All Access EKY employee by upholding the policies and spirit of the program and organization and
2) be willing to learn from and share with others.
