BACKGROUND AND PROGRAM SCOPE

Neighborhood House (NH) builds community and increases access to housing, health, education, and economic opportunity. We envision a healthy, diverse, and welcoming community, free of poverty and racism, where all people thrive. As a human services agency, we run a variety of programs in King County in the realm of early childhood education, youth development, adult education and employment, housing stability, community health, and aging and disability services.

We are looking for assistance with capturing community and program events. During COVID-19, this will predominately be outdoor events and/or hybrid outdoor/indoor events. Examples include health fairs and vaccination clinics. We seek individuals with a creative eye who can help capture moments that will be used with other content to increase NH’s visibility through various communications.

 Edit photographs as needed: crop pictures, correct minor faults, and delete or blur names from nametags. (If someone would not like their picture used, delete all images of that individual before sharing with Neighborhood House.)

 Share photos via Dropbox, Google Drive, or another channel.

QUALIFICATIONS

 Experience in photography and photo editing and/or experience in videography and video editing.

 Commitment to working with people of diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds

 Experience working for, or with, non-profits a plus.
