The Digital Storyteller would work closely with the Volunteer Development Team and Community Philanthropy Teams at the YMCA of Greater Toronto. The internship would involve getting to know volunteers and staff in our child and youth, employment and community as well as our health and fitness programs. Our storyteller will take written narratives and create digital stories to help us raise the profile of our volunteers and the incredible work that they do. Some of these stories will be used at the upcoming 2013 North American YMCA Development Organization (NAYDO) Conference in Vancouver and the 2013 Points of Light Conference in Washington, DC. Stories would also be showcased on the websites askynot.ca and http://www.ymcagta.org
