What is Youth Design Academy (YDA)?
YDA is an 8-week program for inner-city middle school students. As an IP Volunteer Teacher, you will work with a team of designers to help our nonprofit mission of providing a fun and well-rounded design education to inner-city middle school students. Our program strives to inspire young people to pursue higher education and to consider design as a viable career opportunity.
What will teachers do?
• Teach a class of 10 to 15 middle school students, coaching them on design fundamentals and introducing them to a range of professional design career opportunities.
• Design and implement thoughtful, engaging, fun lesson plans for each of the 4 or 8 Saturday classes. Lesson plans should enable students to integrate a command of visual language with imagination, theory and technology.
• Involve parents in the conversation around design as a career prospect.
• Work with the the IP design education committee to work towards tangible goals for each class which includes 4 meetings in February prior to the teaching schedule.
• TAs (teaching assistant) will be available for assisting through the program.
Who would be a good fit?
• Design professionals with knowledge of design principles and practical understanding of design and a passion for collaborating with the community at large.
• Previous teaching and/or mentoring experience (working with 11 to 14 year age group a plus).
