Position Description

Educational Video Center (EVC) is a pioneering youth media and social justice organization dedicated to teaching documentary video as a means to develop the artistic, critical literacy, and career skills of young people, while nurturing their idealism and commitment to social change. EVC is advancing the next generation of activists by building the artistic, cultural, and political power of young New Yorkers—youth who live on the front lines of racial and economic injustice—through documentary film. The Development and Communications Specialist will be part of the Organizational Advancement & Administration Department; and will work closely with the Archive & Distribution Department, and program staff, particularly to promote and develop EVC’s award-winning archive of youth-produced documentaries critically examining issues such as systemic racism and its legacies, gender discrimination, unequal access to healthcare and public transportation, the carceral state, gentrification and urban history, queer identities, and youth involvement in culture and the arts.
