Volunteer Opportunities

 Industry Professionals Wanted

The Kids Initiating Design Solution (KIDS) architecture in schools program is a collaborative
architecture-based program in which elementary students learn to reexamine their environment
and rediscover the built world around them. Through the exploration of art and architecture,
students relate concepts and ideas to lessons being taught inside the classroom. The KIDS
curriculum provides all types of learners access to information through multiple entry points
ranging from reading/written projects to creative kinetic activities.

The program consists of ten 90-minute lessons lead by a teaching team of an artist instructor,
industry professional, and the classroom teacher. Classes meet once a week. Volunteers for both fall and spring semesters are needed!

Industry professionals that volunteer for this program will:

  • Lead visual presentations engaging students in discussion
  • Make real world connections to program curriculum by sharing personal experiences
    relative to art and architecture
  • Encourage creativity, offer support, and challenge students throughout their creative
    process
  • Encourage students to use key art and architecture vocabulary
  • Assist students in constructing individual and group projects
  • Educate students about career paths in the fields of art, design, and architecture
    Inspire students to explore, create, and innovate

To ensure the safety of our students and teaching teams, we are requiring that all our participants
provide proof of vaccination and will be required to wear a mask while inside the classroom.
Students will also be required to wear a mask while indoors.

For more information on the KIDS program or to become a volunteer, email Young Artist
Programs Coordinator Ramon Muñoz at rmunoz@swschool.org.
