CAN Art & Design Volunteer

Visit the CAN Art & Design page to learn more!

The CAN Art & Design program aims to give children creative skill sets to inquire, design, build and connect with their broader community. 


Volunteers help once weekly to partner with students to brainstorm ideas and then put them art and design project to action! Volunteers don't have to be "artistic," but CAN does encourage positive-minded problem-solvers to sign up to help with this fun, 8-week-long


CAN Art & Design Volunteers might:


  • Supervise students during outdoor recreation time

  • Supervise and mentor students during snack breaks

  • Check in with Art & Design instructor to learn about daily needs and projects

  • Help students with tasks like using a hot glue gun, cutting, assembling work, etc.

  • Assist in post-project clean-up

  • Assist in conflict resolution

  • Help students use technology (iPads, computers, etc.) to research

  • Inspire students to bring ideas to fruition


Volunteers must be at least 16 years old, complete a background check (if 18+), and complete the
"CAN Art & Design Volunteer" online training.


To have time to build meaningful connections with CAN's children and youth, volunteers should commit to volunteer for the entire session (8 weeks), if possible.
