About

CAN connects passionate volunteers with students to build academic success and confidence. Volunteers partner with elementary-aged students to design and build a STEM-based art project.

CAN Art & Design Volunteers:

-Supervise students during outdoor recreation time

-Supervise and mentor students during snack breaks

-Check in with Art & Design instructor to learn about daily needs and projects

-Help students with tasks like using hot glue gun, cutting, assembling work, etc.

-Assist in post-project clean-up

-Assist in conflict resolution

-Help students use technology (iPads, computers, etc.) to research

-Inspire students to bring ideas to fruition

CAN Art & Design Programs operate Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 4pm-6pm. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old, complete a volunteer application, background check (if 18+), and online training.

To have enough time to build meaningful relationships with CAN’s children and youth, volunteers must commit to volunteer one day a week for one eight-week session.

You can make a difference! Because of committed and caring volunteers like you, 97% of CAN’s students graduate from high school , which is 27% more than their non-CAN socioeconomic peers (2016).
