Aug/29/2012 The Foster Grandparen​t Program…

Posted by cwilliams • August 29th, 2012

Dear Community Members,

We are in the process of filling our last remaining 10 stipended volunteer slots to offer prospective volunteers for our Foster Grandparent Program.  We have been doing allot of community based outreach at Senior Resource Fairs, Senior Centers and in Supportive Senior Housing sites throughout the city and are looking for more sites to get the word out.


Foster Grandparents Program

Foster Grandparent volunteers serve 15 to 30 hours or more per week and give of their life experiences and talents to improve the lives of children in need as many of these childcare centers and schools serve low incomes families. Many children don’t have an opportunity to connect with an old adult on a daily basis. Foster Grandparent volunteers support these children by helping them to learn new skills and confidence so they can succeed in life.


Benefits of Volunteering

  • Volunteers receive a small tax-free hourly stipend ($2.65 hour) that does not affect any governmental benefits such as Social Security, GA or HUD or MediCal.
  • Ongoing monthly training through Family Service Agency and their host sites
  • Reimbursement for bus passes and mileage
  • Paid sick leave, vacation and holidays
  • Using your skills and experience to help children of varying ages in your community.



Open to volunteers who are age 55 years of age or older with an income no more than:

  • Single: $1,862 per month or $22,340 per year
  • Married: $2,522 per month or $30,260 per year
  • Medical expenses can be deducted from your income in order to meet the income limit.


I have enclosed a flyer for our next Pre-service training on September 5th, 6th and 12th as well as a application that can be printed or emailed to others.  We would really appreciate it if you could post our flyer at your sites or whenever they can be seen in the community. We will hold three trainings for new volunteers in September, late October and early December as we need to fill all of these slots by the end of the calendar year. Please help us to get the word out. Many of you work in larger organizations with multiple programs, so feel free to pass out our materials to anyone who you think would be a good referral source for us.


The majority of our sites serve very ethnically diverse, low income child centered programs throughout the city and bilingual abilities are needed especially in Cantonese, Mandarin, Spanish and Tagalog are very requested. Depending on the community volunteer sites, some volunteers may be OK with “basic English”(especially Chinese Languages)…


We currently have the following volunteer needs…

  •  1 Bilingual Spanish speaking tutor for high school students in the afternoon
  • 2 volunteers to work with toddlers in a site in the central part of the city
  • 2 volunteers for a new pre-school site South of Market
  • 4 volunteers with “Basic” English, primary Cantonese speakers for two pre-school sites in Chinatown
  • 1 volunteer to serve a few evenings a week to support one of our volunteer sites.


Thanks so much for helping us to spread the word…

Aug/29/2012 Recruiting BAVC Next Gen Students

Posted by cwilliams • August 29th, 2012

Hello Folks:

I’d love to ask that you forward the attached program information and flyers to help BAVC recruit for our Next Gen youth programs, which launch early October. We are currently accepting applications online:


The *Bay Area Video Coalition* is excited to announce the launch of our *2012-2013 Digital Pathways program*. Digital Pathways is a free, yearlong after school media arts program that teaches predominantly low income young people ages 14-24 media training and soft skills as a success pathway into college and careers.

Students who enter Digital Pathways join a small class (1 instructor and TA to 10 students) twice a week from October – May where they receive professional training in one of six tracks (see below), along with monthly soft skills (resume and cover letter writing, mock interviews) as well as access to frequent panels, field trips, and guest speakers.

*This year, students can apply for one of six tracks: *

– Beginning or Advanced Audio Production

– Beginning or Advanced Video Production

– Storytelling for the Web: Remix Film/Code

– Bridges (18-24 year olds/CCSF students + program alumni)


Digital Pathways also offers a parent engagement component, requiring parents to participate in semi-monthly forums around college admissions/retention, STEM, financial aid and scholarships in order to further encourage their child’s pathway to college and careers.

After graduating at the end of May, students launch into industry-based, paid internships from June-August, gaining work experience, mentors, and a broader network of contacts. BAVC staff coordinate the internship match making, which have landed students internships at companies like Mozilla, Present Creative, Sega, and Atomic Fiction; as well as local start ups and nonprofit organizations.

Accepted young people will work with trained media professionals, learn how to create high quality projects and participate in job training workshops. Graduates of the program will have the opportunity to put their newfound skills into action as they go to work in paid internships during the summer!

Digital Pathways is highly competitive and selective – we are currently accepting applications and will do so until our September 16 deadline. Please view the attached flier for more information. We can either provide copies for you to distribute or make visits in person for announcements to youth.

Our facility is located in the Mission district at 2727 Mariposa St. We are just minutes from 16th street BART and directly across the street from the 27 MUNI stop on Mariposa and Bryant.

For more information, please visit or contact

Thank you for spreading the word! Warmly,


— *
