Virtual Photography Workshop Assistant

We are looking for an adult volunteer to attend an online youth photography workshop to monitor the behaviour of the children attending, support the tutor if needed and to uphold Poplar Union’s young people’s safeguarding policy.

The volunteer will need to log in to Zoom, ideally via an ipad/laptop/computer (as opposed to a phone), so the maximum number of participants can be visible on screen at all times.

The assistant will then attend the session as a viewer, less so as a participant.

The workshop is for 11-16 year old’s with an interest in photography.

The live Zoom sessions will be during 4pm-5.30pm

Dates: Wednesday’s 3rd February-24th March 2021


The volunteer must have a reliable internet source, access to Zoom, willingness to keep their camera on during the sessions and would preferably access the workshops through a laptop/desktop/ipad, as opposed to a phone.
