Status as role model and mentor to students
This experience made me want to work further with kids, possibly in more volunteer options. I also loved seeing firsthand how creative and unselfconscious kids can be. It’s helpful to get in that “Anything is possible” mindset.
I think my favorite moment was helping two little girls—Sam and Lexi—to swing dance in orbit
(session was about outer space)
. Sam got really discouraged at first but Lexi took her side and taught her the steps with me as a demonstration. Sam kept trying until she was comfortable.
I think doing START reaffirmed my interest in community service and giving back. I hadn’t done much volunteer work or education in a while and I think that moving forward I’ll make a more intentional effort to do so because it’s so rewarding.
What is arts integration?
New volunteer applicants are vetted the term before they volunteer
Teachers contact START with their availability and information about their curriculum and classroom.
Volunteers' schedules are confirmed and volunteers are placed in groups of 2 or 3 and assigned a classroom.
The term begins! Volunteers attend training and begin developing their plans.
After training, volunteers meet with their teacher to review plans.
After meeting with teacher, each START group meets with START staff to review plans.
Each group meets to finalize plans for first visit.
START staff visit classrooms to observe in week 2 and in week 6.
