Youth Outreach Program

Positions Available: 2 - 3

Hours per week: Fall/Spring: 10 - 15

CMU IFF Youth Outreach Program Interns are responsible for the development and execution of the CMU IFF Youth Outreach Program. Each year, the Festival seeks to involve the youth of Pittsburgh in the Festival’s activities, from class-scheduled screenings, to workshops, to participation in the Short Film Student Competition, as well as other unique opportunities from school-school. This year’s Festival aims to design the strongest Youth Outreach Program yet, and this requires creative, innovative interns with the desire to inspire youth in new and exciting ways. Youth Outreach Interns will be expected to collaborate with local schools, both public and private, to organize youth-centric events and workshops. This outreach committee will be building and improving upon a relatively new program with a great deal of freedom and potential. Interns will be expected to take on evolving responsibilities as the committee itself grows. The Youth Outreach Interns will be working closely with the Festival Director and Assistant Director, as well as the Event Coordination Committee.

Desired Skills and Qualifications:
  • Previous experience working with youth (high school age and younger)

  • Strong writing, communication, and organization skills
