Every now and then, I meet a student here at NYIT who is into graphic design, and whenever I do, the first thing I admittedly and unwarrantedly think to myself is, "There's no way he/she is better at it than I am." Fortunately, me and my novice skills are often proven wrong! I imagine there are many more students in this school who are skilled in graphic design. If you are one of them, then here's a chance for you to lend your abilities toward something good.
The ActNow Foundation is a non-profit company that provides a platform for ethnically and racially diverse filmmakers, producers, writers, and actors, whose productions focus on the full range of African-American & Latino experiences. They are currently looking for volunteers to design festival posters, fliers, newsletters, and other promotional materials for print and web. If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, you can learn more at: http://actnowproduction.org/
