Project Details

What We Need
  • An edited 1-3 minute video delivered in electronic format as agreed upon between the Professional and Organization, with HD quality as a master version, along with any agreed upon formats for final usage
Additional Details

We need help recruiting talent, particularly direct care staff. We have lots of raw footage, but need help to edit into a compelling reason our target job seeker will come to this non profit.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have raw footage, and an informercial, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have staff on site, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,422 , allowing us to provide tuition reductions for needy students.

Direct care staff are the backbone of our organization. As we prepare to fully open all educational and vocational services that were suspended because of the pandemic, we find ourselves with a talent shortage. It is very difficult to compete with for profit businesses. Caregivers are essential workers, and needed now more than ever as people with disabilities deal with the mental and emotional toll of their social isolation for the past year.

Project Plan

Prep: Information Sharing & Asset Exchange
  • Volunteer Manager provides overview of vision and goals for video, as well as information about target audience
  • Volunteer Manager and Professional agree upon file format and length of video
  • Volunteer Manager collects collateral (e.g. raw video footage, photos, testimonials, media materials) to be edited into the video, and digitizes all the materials in the format and resolution suggested by the professional. If applicable, the Organization provides links to 3-5 videos it would like the professional to use as a creative guideline for the final product
Milestone 1: Video Outline & Script Finalization
  • Professional reviews assets that the Organization shared (including existing footage and proposed script) to create video outline
  • Professional shares with Organization and incorporates feedback
Milestone 2: Video Creation & Feedback
  • Professional creates video in agreed upon format and shares with Organization for feedback (up to 2 rounds)
Milestone 3: Final Video Delivery
  • Professional delivers final video in agreed upon format

About The Org

MacDonald Training Center
Our Mission

To empower people with disabilities to lead the lives they choose.

What We Do

MacDonald Training Center (MTC) transforms lives through innovations in vocational training, employment pathways, residential supports and life enrichment opportunities.

MacDonald Training Center is a private- 501(c)( 3) non profit, established in 1953 by J. Clifford MacDonald, as one of the first pre-schools in our nation for children with disabilities. A tireless advocate for full inclusion for people with disabilities, Mr. MacDonald received the Presidential Medal of Freedom and served as Chair of the National Committee for Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment. We honor his legacy.


Ben captured the message beautifully! He took our b-roll footage and edited it into a strong promotional video. And he finished the project in two days! We couldn't be more pleased...and grateful.

I enjoyed working with the MacDonald Training Center very much, and as I got to see what they were all about, their story resonated with me in a way I've never felt before. I hope to work with a similar organization that is in partnership with Catchafire in the near future.
