Graphic designer needed for short-term project
Blue Sky Bakery & Cafe
Blue Sky Bakery has been providing transitional employment opportunities to Chicago's youth for thirteen years. While we continue our in-person job training program on a much smaller scale than usual because of COVID-19, we are piloting a program for youth to learn to bake at home. We are targeting 16-24 year olds who are staying in homeless shelters, on electronic monitoring or enrolling in online GED programs.
We would like a graphic designer to work with youth to develop a logo to use when packaging their baked goods. We think this will be a great way for them to personalize the process and express their creativity. We will provide each participant with a sheet of stickers and set of boxes to use to package and share their baked goods.
We have not developed a detailed curriculum for this program yet, but would like the graphic designer to offer some input into how this might operate. We look forward to your thoughts!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Blue Sky Bakery & Cafe
3720 N. Lincoln Avenue, Chicago, IL 60613, US
Blue Sky Bakery & Café does more than create delicious pastries using the freshest, highest quality ingredients. As a nonprofit organization, we also raise the edible consciousness of our community by providing transitional employment to homeless and at-risk youth. Social change, powered by your appetite.
The Blue Sky Employment Program provides homeless and at-risk youth with twelve weeks of paid, supportive employment at Blue Sky Bakery & Café. Youth gain valuable experience in cooking, baking, maintaining a sanitary work environment, delivering catering orders, customer service and cash-handling.
Youth meet each week with our staff to address issues such as professional communication, time management, conflict resolution, and diversity. They also receive assistance updating their resumes, practicing interview skills and seeking long-term employment.
