One of our objectives has always been to expand community work so that you and your friends can start an initiative of your own. One reason why initiatives don’t get off the ground is because there isn’t enough experience and advise going around to help get it started. That’s why we try to work with new people and include anyone who is interested to join us so that what we do, learn, share and develop isn’t just constrained to us.
So, if you’re interested to get into community work that promises a whole lotta fun and invaluable experiences, read on!!!!
We’re looking for facilitators, assistant facilitators and general volunteers. You’ll be facilitating or assisting to facilitate workshops for teenagers aged 13 – 16 years old. Most have not been exposed to any of the art forms/skills. Each workshop takes 2 to 4 days, every weekend only, from 11am – 3pm.
Phase 2 is from March 2011 – June 2011. We’ll be mapping out FOOD in Chow Kit!
PHASE 2 WORKSHOPS:
– Graphic Design
– Internet (Internet for Dummies: How to blog, use search engines)
– Research (How to conduct research)
– T-Shirt Printing
Facilitators are the driving force behind workshops and the end products the teens will come up with. To be a facilitator, you first must know your art form/skill. If you’re a pro, that’s great! If you’re not, you don’t have to be!
As a facilitator, knowing your art form/skill is one thing. But knowing how to pass on your skill to others is another. You need to know how to communicate your lessons. If you have experience facilitating, that’s great! If you don’t, we provide facilitator training to prep you with methods and tips.
Modules are available but you can create your own module or improvise on the existing module.
Assistant facilitators must also know their art form/skill. An assistants’ role is to work together with the facilitator to develop modules and assist the facilitator during workshop. Ideally, assistants are people who are skillful in their art form/skill and want to learn how to become a facilitator. It’s like an internship!
For almost every workshop, we will need volunteers who can come and help give one-on-one assistance to every teen. We did that in Phase 1 and we found it to be so useful! So like Phase 1, keep yourself updated through our CKK Volunteer Facebook (http://on.fb.me/cWWVv5) group as we will make an announcement whenever we need volunteers for a particular workshop.
