  2. 2. CityDays MIT2016 #MITservice#MIT02139 Be mindful & respectful • Your photo and social media activity should not interfere with your role at the service location or interrupt others from performing theirs. • Portray fellow volunteers and organization staff and clients in a positive, respectful manner. Who can be in your photo? • Get permission from the people you are capturing in your photo. • Your group coordinator will hand out red dots to those that do not want to be captured in photos or videos. Keep an eye out for the red dots. • Note that volunteers not associated with your group or MIT may also be working along side you. • If volunteers prefer not to be photographed, frame your photo from a different angle, such that they won’t be included. When to post? • Before the start of the volunteer session • During a break • After your shift has ended • Alternatively, you can email the photo to (see instructions below). What to share via email? • We’d love to share your photos and quotes on PKG Center social media channels. • Email your photo to • Include at least the name of the organization, photographer credit, and caption. • You can also send us comments or a quote about your service experience. Suggestions for photos and posts • Group shots before and after the volunteering event • Photo of your group at work • Your reflection quote (on the back of the organization information card) • A note about what volunteering makes you feel or think about • A note about the organization Hashtags • When posting your own social media post, include these hashtags in your posts: #MITservice and #MIT02139.
