As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Amazing VolunTeens from Summer '16 are learning where the museum props go in a fun 3-legged race
Apply today to join Thinkery's elite group of teen volunteers, the VolunTeens. VolunTeens is a career-readiness program that provides meaningful work experience, mentorship, and 21st centry skill building in a fun, supportive and playful environment. Teens age 12-18 volunteer behind-the-scenes and "on-the-floor" in the galleries, facilitating STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) activities with a diverse audience.
After applications and attending a group interview, a cohort of 15-20 outstanding teens are selected and onboarded cyclically. Onboarding happens each Fall, Spring and Summer. During the school year, teens attend mandatory trainings most Saturdays of that semester, and in the summer each weekday for four concecutive weeks. Applications open for upcoming semesters at the end of the cycle prior.
Applications, information and more can be found at www.thinkeryaustin.org/volunteens .
