Get involved with JersVision!

Hey folks!

Jer’s Vision is having a 2 day Dare to Stand Out Conference for middle schools on resiliency, anti-bullying, and art. (It will be the same conference happening both days but at a different venue for different schools each day.) At the end of the day, students will have produced a creative piece that can be compiled together into a booklet or series of booklets.

We’re looking for volunteers to give 1 hour workshops in the morning on different strategies around resiliency, and 90 minute workshops in the afternoon on using art as a form of resiliency to overcome bullying. The volunteers would have to be available to do the workshop on both days. They would get free food, can check out other workshops, and if they’re artists, be exposed to working in the school system and have that experience on their resume. 

Dates & Times:
Thursday, April 25, 2013 – 11:30am to 12:30pm or 1:00pm-2:30pm
Friday, April 26, 2013 – 11:30am to 12:30pm or 1:00pm-2:30pm
