The LINK Program holds 9 monthly Saturday arts & design workshops and a gallery show celebration during the school year. General volunteers commit to joining 3-9 workshops to help with tasks like setting up, cleaning up, managing snacks, organizing supplies, taking photos, and getting to know our amazing 9th-12th grade students. We need your help to keep our workshops running smoothly!

Head over to our Volunteer Intake form to share your interests and get started: https://tinyurl.com/link-volunteer-intake

After attending their first workshop, volunteers can build skills as workshop leads and assistant leads to connect with guest artists and plan lessons with guidance from LINK staff. Volunteers who prefer behind-the-scenes work help keep the program afloat, with activities like student recruitment, newsletter production, scholarship coordination, website maintenance, and more.

You'll love volunteering with LINK if you have an interest in:

  • Developing the next generation of artists and designers
  • Building equity and closing opportunity gaps in arts and design
  • Working with high school students
  • Enjoying or practicing art and/or design

Note: Our office is closed during July 2024. If you complete the intake form in July, we may reach out to you at the beginning of August!

Mission Statement

LINK creative workshops center self-expression, portfolio-building, and arts equity in King County and beyond. Our mission is a part of the Coyne Foundation's vision to help low-income students and young artists from communities that are underrepresented in arts and design fields to develop portfolios, and support them with building a stronger path to success. Beyond art, LINK is a way to build confidence and help young people envision themselves after high school as working professionals or college students, benefiting from the many ways that art and design enrich our lives.

Description

The AIGA LINK Program is a fantastic, free, non-profit program for high school students that's been changing the lives of Seattle-area teens since 1994. We connect young people with a different working creative professional each month, make finished portfolio pieces using different mediums, have a gallery show of our students' work at the end of the year, and award scholarships to our graduating seniors. And we'd love to work with you!
