About

CREATE Workshop is our new program for transitional partner sites where youth are not permanently enrolled or housed. Volunteers sign-up to work with youth on a semi-regular basis at the partner agency, without the every week commitment that is required for Weekly Mentorship. This allows individuals or groups more flexibility while also providing an opportunity to engage with their community. Volunteers receive training and can sign up individually or as a group.

Commitment: Volunteers will sign-up for a minimum of 3 CREATE Workshop sessions per term which are 1.5-2 hours in length (spring, summer or fall). They will be teamed up with 3-5 other volunteers at a transitional site.

Expectations: Volunteers lead and conduct art projects provided by Free Arts Minnesota. Each set of planned arts curriculum is unique to the site because it focuses on the areas of development and themes relevant to the site. The workshop will include a short lesson about the medium, artist, or style that is being introduced to the youth followed by the completion of an art project.

Requirements: At least 16 years old, passionate about serving youth in the community, ability to engage with youth.
