Cyberninjaz Global, a Washington, DC based non-profit is seeking volunteers with at least one STEAM skill (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) to teach or assist in teaching a new virtual program targeted at (although not exclusive to) low income children in Takoma Park City, MD.
The exact program specifications are flexible as we are still in the planning phase. Our current plan is for each program to support up to 25 children ages 8 and up. Programs will be 1 hour either on weekdays after school or weekends 2-3 times per week. Most likely they will run for 4 weeks each.
You can visit our website https://cyberninjaz.com/courses to see what kind of courses we offer to students. Again, we only need our teacher(s) to be able to teach one of these subjects. And if you have a different STEAM related skill that you can teach, we are absolutely interested in adding new classes!
Our classes our generally project oriented. Projects help empower the students to continue learning after the classes is over, and showing them off is a great way to encourage other kids and get them excited about learning.
Classes will likely be taught on Zoom or a comparable platform that allows for easy lesson recording. We also use Discord: https://cyberninjaz.com/discord
Please reach out to us if you or anyone you know may be interested in helping out with these new classes.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About CYBERNINJAZ GLOBAL INC
1949 Alabama Ave SE, Washington, DC 20020, US
Cyberninjaz Global, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) educational non-profit dedicated to closing the digital divide by providing STEAM (STEM + Art) learning opportunities to kids and adults of all backgrounds. We are especially focused on underrepresented kids in Washington, DC.
Established in 2014, Cyberninjaz started as a Tech and Fitness Summer Camp in Potomac, MD where we taught (and still teach) game design, programming, digital art, 3D animation, video production, editing, and special effects, digital music production and composition, and much more!
We love teaching children. Our focus is on practical skills while heavily encouraging creativity and independence. Our goal is to provide a fun and relaxing atmosphere instead of a stressful one so our young learners grow to associate positive emotions with learning. We also promote both our student's individuality and the power of team work. It's absolutely amazing to see what kids can accomplish given the right environment and support!
Along with our summer camp which is still going strong, we now also provide a multitude of year long programs including in school programs, after school programs, virtual class, private tutoring, and community events.
Our current goals are to expand our programs so we can reach more students, to provide career opportunities for educators and other members of our community, and eventually to start our own schools/universities modeled after our student's success.
