We Need Volunteers From Everywhere!
Professional Photographers Needed
Photos are used for all forms of recruitment, websites, flyers, Heart Gallery displays and more. They give a child a much better chance of finding a family and being seen in a positive light.
Our Heart Gallery promises to:
1. Recognize photographer in the newsletter and on the website.
2. Give photographer an update when the child(ren) they photographed is(are) adopted.
3. Photographer will be given all information and support necessary to make this an enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
4. Photographer will receive an electronic version of the AFFEC logo that can link to AFFEC website.
Photographers will be able to display this on their website so that clients and potential clients can see that you have worked with our organization.
We would not be here if it wasn't for all of the support from photographers.
Heart Gallery Local Coordinator
We are looking for a Volunteer Heart Gallery Coordinator to work from our Eugene/Springfield office. The Heart Gallery is a portrait exhibit displayed to raise awareness of the needs of foster children who are waiting and hoping for their own adoptive family to love and protect them. Professional photographers volunteer to take compelling portraits and these beautifully framed and matted portraits get displayed along with the children's biographies in various venues that will touch your heart. We are looking for a volunteer Heart Gallery Coordinator to work with our Heart Gallery Director. This will involve:
-Monthly portrait orders
-Putting together update (image & bio) packets for our volunteer to pick up and update their venues
-Some outreach to new venues
-Coordinating venue volunteers
-Being part of our team to grow and brainstorm new ways to create visibility for the Heart Gallery.
This position is 5-10 hours a week depending on the time of month (the beginning of the month and/or last week of the month are when most update work is done). We hope you will consider joining our Team! The Heart Gallery is our Landmark program and we are very proud of what has been done and hope to do much more!
Photo - Videographer Coordinator-Local
Our Heart Gallery needs someone who can come in approximately 5 hours a week and help coordinate our Venue Photo Packets, connect with and process photographers from all over the state as well as nationwide. Someone who can do outreach and connect with photographers -scheduling photo sessions, following up and processing images once completed.
Venue Volunteers- Program (Heat Gallery) Local, WA & OR
Would you enjoy driving around town and spend just a few hours a month going to our venues and swapping out photographs of children? You may have seen these around the area (if you reside in Oregon). We display photos of available and waiting children with bio information in restaurants, doctors and dentist's offices, airports, grocery stores and the like. All photos and needs are supplied by our organization. This basically consists of picking up your new photos, going to the venue and updating the displays.
Heart Gallery Expansion Coordinator
This position would include:
-Statewide outreach for Photographers and Videographers
-Statewide outreach for possible gallery venues/vendors/volunteers, etc
-Statewide outreach for resources (printing, frames, brochure holders, easels, banners, etc)
-Assist in organization of storage (photos, frames, matt board, supplies, etc) to create sample for other sites
-Document gallery set-up, storage of equipment, etc with photos/video to be used as samples
-Research, outreach and record data, on Heart Galleries across the country
Business Advocate (part of the Heart Gallery Venues)
-We have started a Business Advocate effort--Where we are offering business the opportunity to high light a child in their place of business, on an easel, or as a window display to do some specific recruitment for the harder to place children. I have one person that is working on this, but, can see (because of the immediate interest) that she could use a partner. It is a creative way of displaying children. So if you have a creative, artsy flare, this might be your strength.
-This would involve doing outreach to business all over the state, seeking sponsored venues, getting them started and linking our websites, then passing them off to a venue volunteer to maintain.
Faith-Based Heart Gallery Coordinator
This position would include:
-Scheduling exhibits for our yearly ongoing faith-based Heart Gallery calendar
-Sending letters to prospective faith-based sites

-Helping with exhibit set-up
-Maintaining brochure inventory
-Following up with sites after an exhibit (thank you letter, rescheduling for next year, etc)
-Soliciting donations for needed supplies (frames, easels, picture stands, brochure holders, etc)
-Data entry of all of the above
-Creation of a process binder for all of the above (so we can duplicate this program in other parts of the state)
Heart Gallery Faith-Based Host
-2-3 hours per week (Sundays)
Our Heart Gallery photos are on display each month at a different local church. Sunday morning greeters are needed to attend the display where the display is showing. Duties include: directing viewers to the Heart Gallery literature, making sure the exhibit is in good order, and noting any questions to be passed on to AFFEC employees, etc.
We are always in need of new Easels for our venues.
Frame Repair and/or collecting frames for our venues at garage sales and other sources.
Creative Photo Display
We have some wonderful photo pieces that include the photo and child's bio all in one frame and we would love to have these duplicated for variety in our Heart Gallery exhibits. This could be an ongoing project.
