Join About-Face in getting the word out about how young women are affected by mainstream media!
Who: Passionate activists! Quiet behind-the-scenes helpers! Education-minded world changers! New and familiar faces are welcome! (Volunteers must be ages 13 and up).
What: About-Face Volunteer Meetup
When: Thursday, September 24, 2009, 7-9pm
Why: To help About-Face equip women and girls with tools to understand and resist harmful media messages that affect their self-esteem and body image.
How: At this Volunteer Meetup, you will learn more about our small but effective organization and the many ways we can work together! You will also get to enjoy a free dinner with others who are interested in this issue!
In the early part of the meeting, About-Face staff will introduce the organization and talk about the many volunteer opportunities we have open, which range from a couple hours to a couple months.
If you like, you can stay and start volunteering RIGHT AWAY! We’ll have a few projects to do until the end of the meeting.
You can also sign up for longer-term volunteer opportunities and get to know us better.
If you have a laptop with Microsoft Office (Word, Excel) on it, we’d love for you to bring it.
Please try to RSVP so we are sure we have enough food (and to let us know if you have any food restrictions, which we will try to accommodate): firstname.lastname@example.org or (415) 436-0212. But we’re not going to turn you away if you don’t RSVP!
We look forward to seeing you on September 24!
