We’re currently looking for volunteers to help out during studio time at REcreate Outreach Art Studio. Studio times happen 3 times a week and are times when at-risk, street-involved and homeless youth can come to the studio and make art. As a studio volunteer, you’d be responsible for assisting the studio coordinator to make sure all the youth have the supplies that they need, giving youth positive feedback on their work, encouraging youth and spending time, listening to them and being someone who cares about them and their lives.
A criminal reference check (vulnerable persons), through your local police station, will be required to volunteer in the studio.
Currently open studio is offered on:
Monday from 12:30-3:00pm
Tuesday from 7:00-9:00pm
Thursday from 4:00-6:00pm
You would not need to be available for all those times in order to be a volunteer, but we’d like to have you there at least once a week. We find that it takes the youth a long time to build rapport with volunteers who are present less than once a week.
To apply, please contact Meghan Schuurman, Studio Coordinator at REcreate.
