All Access EKY Application
All Access EKY is now accepting applications for our Spring 2018 Semester! We are hiring youth producers to create multi-media stories about reproductive healthcare access in eastern Kentucky.
All Access EKY is a partnership of Appalshop, The Kentucky Health Justice Network, and Power to Decide, supported by the Educational Foundation of America. Together we are leading a project that works with ten Southeastern KY counties to build support for programs and services to ensure young people have access to the full range of contraceptive methods. Studies have shown that when young people have access to and correct information about birth control and reproductive health, as well as the opportunity to make decisions about their future, reductions in unplanned pregnancy are sure to follow.
*8 week paid fellowship to produce audio, video, and written pieces telling the stories of birth control access, reproductive health care, and medical work happening here in Eastern Kentucky.
* Up to 5 applicants will be chosen from the region to work intensively with All Access EKY/Appalshop staff. Over the course of the Spring semester we will explore the basics of video and audio production, view and discuss documentary video, and learn how to produce and distribute meaningful media about community issues.
* The multimedia work produced during our spring semester has the potential to be seen by audiences across the United States, and abroad.
* Working with All Access EKY can be both a challenging and rewarding experience. It is important that you are interested in exploring your creativity through media making. You must:
1) be a responsible All Access EKY employee by upholding the policies and spirit of the program and organization and
2) be willing to learn from and share with others.
All Access requirements are minimal. Simply, interns must be between ages 14 and 22 and capable of behaving, thriving, and interacting in a diverse and professional environment with a mature attitude. Prior experience with media is neither expected, nor required – only a creative mindset with a willingness to learn and do the work. A commitment to meet the expectations of the project and to respect your schedule are important. We are happy to work with school schedules, but also hold that this is a job that you must show commitment to.
February 12th - April 6th (because this is winter in East Kentucky, inclement weather could cause the end date to be delayed)
All fellows will receive a stipend of $1,500 for 8 weeks, it will be paid in two checks. The first check will be received after a mid-term evaluation and performance review and the second check will be received after the completion of the project.
March 2nd - $750
April 6th - $750
There will be two required weekly check-ins
Mondays 3:30-5:00 pm
Thursdays 3:30-5:00 pm
The rest of your work will be on your own time, we expect at least 15-20 hours of work a week, but the main objective is to complete high quality media pieces.
Because All Access EKY/Appalshop serves as a positive model for young people in the community, interns will not be allowed to use tobacco products, consume alcohol, or take unauthorized drugs on the premises of Appalshop or while you are working as an intern in the community.
Appalshop and All Access EKY do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender identity, sexual preference, or disability. Interns will be held to the same standard.
All Access EKY Fellows are considered employees and representatives of Appalshop. Failure to adhere to All Access EKY/Appalshop policies or expectations may result in suspension of pay or dismissal from the program.
