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).
