If you’re interested in volunteering with Acción Latina, please fill out our volunteer form. Below are some examples of volunteer opportunities currently available through our various programs:
In our Literary Arts Program:
In 2016, we’ll be hosting monthly poetry readings and music events (Mixed Poetry Series) on the second Sunday of every month starting in April. We need volunteers to help plan and execute these events throughout the year.
In our Juan R. Fuentes Gallery:
Volunteers can assist in the gallery by working with our staff on event planning, helping to install and de-install exhibitions, marketing the exhibitions, assisting with opening receptions, preparing materials associated with the exhibitions, documenting the exhibitions through photography and videography, etc.
In our Community Media Program:
Every two weeks we produce an issue of El Tecolote, the bilingual newspaper we’ve been publishing since 1970, which is created primarily by volunteers. We always need writers, photographers, translators, graphic designers and proofreaders.
In our Archive and Latino Voices Project:
For individuals interested in history and archival materials, we have numerous projects that involve scanning photos and other ephemera, conducting research, cataloging materials, and preparing for presentations that showcase materials from our archives.
