Outreach and Recruitment Advocate: Dept. of Theatre and Cinema Studies
Promote the social, academic, and aesthetical benefits of theatre involvement on a collegiate level and to boost non-major/major audition and technical crew participation.
I created and managed the current outline of this program. Adapted from program model used at the University of Georgia. Participant engagement and recruitment primarily stems from outreach in the Greater Blacksburg and Christiansburg area; as well as attending all state level literary and performance conferences and competitions
Our one-day workshop Behind the Scenes is designed to give high school students an interactive experience of our Theatre and Cinema Studies Department. Behind the Scenes activities are, but not limited to, the following: Tour of our Theatre facilities; Learn about majoring in Theatre at VT; Parent/Guardian Talkback with VT Theatre Administration Rep and much more!
August 2015-May 2018
Over past two years and a half, I have served as the UGA Department of Theatre and Film Studies’ Outreach and Recruitment Coordinator Assistant. Initially this position did not exist as a regular assistantship option; however, I noticed an immense need of cultural diversity within our department. While we have the resources to serve a multiplicity of students, there was a lack of interests.

Designed workshop outline and curriculum based on needs assessment on the local high school demographic. This interactive workshop is designed to raise awareness about the UGA’s thriving and exciting Department of Theatre and Film Studies and preparing for the professional world of theatrical auditions.
Through this 1-hour intensive master class, the students will receive real-world advice and several critical tips for doing their personal best for the next audition. Our workshop objective is preparing young actors to bring their 'A' game to casting directors by learning audition techniques, how to put their best foot forward in the casting room and, how to be in the mindset of a working actor.
