The course will provide students at VCU and open participants a chance to learn about social media campaigns for global health issues and to get hands-on experience in developing social media strategies. VCU students are enrolled in the course “MASC 291 – Global Health and Social Media” and open participants will be able to enroll through VCU’s Office of Continuing and Professional Education.
The course is offered as an open online course by the Richard T. Robertson School of Media and Culture in cooperation with the the Office of Continuing and Professional Education at VCU. It was developed in consultation with VCU’s ALT Lab. This class is one of the first ones at VCU that allows the public to participate in course work and it is viewed as an exciting experiment.

A great organization that is looking for mentors and interns!
Interested volunteers are encouraged to participate by becoming weekly mentors. After forms are completed and training occurs, they will be assigned a child and expected to volunteer two hours each week at one of the Northside Learning Centers. Each mentor works with his or her child for a two-hour session between 4:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Mentors provide emotional encouragement, homework assistance and read with the children daily. Mentors are asked to make at least a one-year commitment. Their need for volunteer mentors is ongoing.
