About

MONONA TERRACE SEEKS VOLUNTEERS FOR SCHOOL OUTREACH & TOURS Madison, WI - Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center is currently accepting applications through March 1, 2015 for volunteer student tour guides and student workshop facilitators. Volunteers will help facilitate these existing programs for K-12 students. Tours and workshops are interactive and encourage exploration of architecture and design. Student tours take place throughout the year at Monona Terrace, but are in highest demand in the late spring each year. Each tour lasts about one hour. Froebel block workshops take place in Dane County elementary schools. Volunteers work with student groups to teach about architecture using the same wooden blocks that inspired Frank Lloyd Wright as a child. Forty-five minute workshops take place throughout the year. Disc-overy Building Workshops take place at Monona Terrace. Volunteers will facilitate student teams through cooperative learning using cardboard discs to build large scale structures. The structure of nature and/or built elements will be emphasized based on the needs of the visiting students. Workshops run about 45 minutes. No knowledge about architecture is necessary and training is provided. Excellent candidates are individuals who enjoy working with students, exhibit patience and love to learn. For more information about these Monona Terrace volunteer opportunities, contact the Tourism Coordinator, Heather Sabin at 608.261.4015 or hsabin@mononaterrace.com.
