Islands of Brilliance needs your help!

It’s a great problem to have, but – ACK!! Student demand is skyrocketing! IOB is looking to fill 36 design mentor roles for their Midwinter Design workshops. To that end, they’re launching a brand new Brilliant Benefits program to reward participation and referrals to the program.

Volunteer roles needed:  Design Mentors, Art Buddy, IOB-BFF, and NEW – Photographer!

Workshops will match each student 1 : 1 with a Design Mentor. They offer an “unplugged” maker’s area — manned by an Art Buddy — as a technology break or as an opportunity for students to add a variety of media to their digital design project. The IOB-BFF role assists with workshop setup, volunteer and student assistance, and being an extra set of hands whenever needed. If you have your own 35mm camera and know how to wield it, sign up as a Photographer and shoot some pics on the weekend!
