Have something to share with young people? Become a Visiting Specialist!
We welcome volunteer Visiting Specialists interested in sharing their interests and expertise with young people in the 4-18 year old range. Some Visiting Artists do one-on-one classes/activities, others do small groups (4-6 young people). Some come for one session, some come for 4-6 weeks in a row. There are many possible arrangements. No one is asked to commit to anything beyond an initial visit, as you get to know us and we get to know you.
Visiting Specialists with experience in any of the following areas are especially helpful:
Reading and writing in various disciplines/genres
Mathematics, statistics, geometry, and other logical thinking
History, World cultures, Civics
Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Environmental Science, Anatomy
Geology, Geography, Astronomy
Engineering and Robotics
Outdoor education and games

CONSIDERATIONS FOR APPLICANTS
Natural Creativity is a non-profit organization that is amidst a transition from a "start-up" status. For applicants, this means that you will be part of a culture of building towards a common goal. Your contribution to the NC community is an important part of our development. Potential applicants should be asking themselves what type of impact they would like to make, and in what ways will their technical skills they feel comfortable/qualified to facilitate, contribute to the overall community.
