I work together with staff and volunteers to implement programming for middle school and high school youth. I provide input for planning activities for the youth as well as work to keep the art studio organized. I supervise and guide the youth during the various after-school program activities.


I have had the opportunity to clean and organize the art studio, so that staff and volunteers are able to find the materials they need. I also have been working on creating curriculum for the middle school program.

What advice would you give?

My advice is that students seek after an organization that shares their values and aligns with their abilities because that is where the most growth can occur.
