This is a unique opportunity to travel the world, making a real difference in the lives of people in the poorest, most under-served communities on the globe. If you’re an enthusiastic volunteer who is looking for a way to share your knowledge about video and video production, join us in making videos that can be used to change the world.

We travel to areas in need and teach Video Education Workshops, where communities learn to create short educational or training focused videos. These videos are then put on cordless projectors, taken into low resource areas, and used to disseminate important information – like improved farming techniques or learning resources for rural teachers. Some of the areas we focus on include: agriculture, nutrition, education, civic participation, and many more.

Our Videomakers Without Borders are expected to be:

Help Your Country While Developing Your Hobby

Do you live in a developing nation? Are you skilled in video production? Join OMPT as a Local Video Trainer!

OMPT travels all over the world to conduct workshops in under-served and remote communities. We are always looking for Local, in-country Video Trainers to help us conduct our workshops. The workshops teach aid organizations to create short educational or training focused videos. These videos are then put on cordless projectors, taken into low resource areas, and used to disseminate important information – like improved farming techniques or learning resources for rural teachers. Some of the areas we focus on include: agriculture, nutrition, education, civic participation, and many more.
