IN SEARCH OF...

Currently, we schedule volunteer Visiting Specialists, Process Partners, and Artists-in-Residence according to availability, mutual interest, and content area. We welcome these partners to our Germantown location any time during our program, Monday-Thursday, 9a-3p (Sept-June). There may also be opportunities for activities, meetings, and trips outside of those hours, and we would be happy to have conversations about that possibility. We consider availability in the following terms:

VISITING SPECIALISTS
  • One-time visits to speak with a small number of interested youths about career paths and options. One-time visits offer a taste of the program, and can be used as entry points for subsequent visits

  • One-time visits to work with a small number of interested youths on adult-initiated activities relating to a topic of interest to the adult (for example, a city planner building a miniature town out of Lego or recycled materials with youths)

PROCESS PARTNERS
  • One-time visits to work with a small number of interested youths on youth-initiated activities relating to a topic of interest to the youth (for example, joining in a group of young people making K'Nex roller coasters or skyscrapers)

ARISTS-IN-RESIDENCE
  • Recurring visits relating to an evolving series of topics or string of sub-topics within a broader interest area (for example, four visits, with each one focusing on a different simple machine, such as pulley or level, that includes building and testing devices), which can be contained (3, 5, or 6 week sessions) or open-ended (every other Tuesday throughout the year) (Artist-in-Residence)

  • If deciding on this option, we may also consider number of visits per week in each option

TRIPS
  • On-site visits that lead to off-site field trips and/or mentorships, facilitated by NC

 

There may also be variations of any of the above, or new incarnations you suggest that we have not yet considered

Please note that no one is asked to commit to anything beyond an initial visit, as you get to know us and we get to know you. The options listed above are intended to illustrate a range of possible arrangements.
