Teens Can Help! Seeking Management Team Members Now

Teenagers! Are you interested in helping produce these Under 21 Open Mic shows?
If you are, please let us know by sending an email to: for an application
or apply on our facebook page
The main round of applications closed Saturday, Oct 6th at 11:59pm,
but there are still a few positions available, and they will be open until filled. 
Positions marked with ** on the list below are OPEN. 

We feel, as an organization that works with and for youth, it is appropriate and imperative that young people are involved in both the month to month event management and  the long term decision making/growth of the program. So, we are changing our operating format so we can become an organization that is
"for young people, by young people."
To do that, we are creating a volunteer Youth Management Team. 
Management team members can fill a variety of roles including: 
1) Host - West
2) **Host - East 
3) Live Sound Engineer, Lighting - West
4) **Live Sound Engineer, Lighting - East
5) Photography - East
6) Photography - West
7) Graphic design, posters, logo, merch
8) **Marketing, promotion, social media management 

Members of the management team will meet once per (school) quarter to discuss what is going well, what we can improve/add/forgo, how we should grow, goals, etc. On site training by an area professional can be provided if requested. No experience necessary.  We are looking for people under 21 years old who have a positive attitude, are respectful of all music/performance genres, and are interested in gaining collaboration and leadership experience. This is a great opportunity for young people who are looking to gain volunteer hours for college applications, and/or for someone who just wants to give back. Share with those who might be interested! Apply!
