Summer Camps 2019

Volunteer Mentor Program

What’s STEAMLabs Summer volunteer program?

Volunteers are golden-hearted humans who keep our non-profit ticking  – they support the execution of youth summer camps at two locations in Toronto! Our summer mentors will work alongside our educators to create a fun, safe and educational summer experience for our campers.

 

MENTORS | Recruitment for Summer 2019 has opened! 

  • Mentor in our youth programs – you’ll be assigned to a youth program, and come in once a week to support participants (6-17 years old) to build their own interest-lead projects using new and old tools and technologies. In some cases, you’ll be assigned your own students / group to work with, and will be responsible for supporting them to move forward with their project.
  • Help set up, pack up and keep things tidy – our programs are designed for controlled chaos, so you’ll work with our staff to keep LEDs in containers, wires wrapped up, wood chips swept, craft materials sorted and glue unglued from tables.
  • Welcome parents and participants – we’ll need your help greeting parents, singing participants in and helping them get oriented.
  • Help us make our programs better – we do a lot of things right, but there is always room to improve the experience of participants, parents and mentors. You’ll take part in debriefs and provide us with feedback so we can keep evolving how we engage with our community.

The Commitment

STEAMLabs runs a variety of 1 week long camps at two different locations in Toronto: Toronto Tool Library (192 Spadina Ave) and Maker Bean Cafe (1052 Bloor St W). Read more about our summer camps.

 

Our volunteer program is for people who want to be meaningfully engaged in our organization. Volunteers mentors will need to be available for at least a full 3 weeks of camp to be considered.

 

The only prerequisite for volunteering is that you love helping kids bring their weird and wonderful ideas to life. Bonus points if you’ve worked with kids before, have experience making things (anything! cakes, sweaters, robots) or have any technical skills (sewing, electronics, woodworking, 3D printing, illustrator, laser cutting etc.).
