Your Experience Can Change a Child’s Life
Design4Kids workshops give busy professionals the satisfaction of making a tremendous impact on young peoples lives in a very short period of time. By taking just one short week out of your schedule, you will gain a lifetime of reward watching the growth you are fostering in some very remarkable youth. And you get all this while enjoying the benefits of international travel and connecting with another culture.
All of our workshops are formed around a communications project for a non-profit client. As a mentor, you will help prepare the students for their initial client interview, then coach the kids, as they progress from creative brief, through brainstorming, creative development, critique, preparation of comprehensive layouts, and finally on to their final concept presentation to their client. And you don’t need to speak Spanish. Fotokids provides translators.
The process is guided by Design4Kids and Fotokids staff working in collaboration with you and the rest of the mentor team. The kids do all of the work. As a mentor, you are there to give feedback, encouragement, constructive criticism, and the wisdom of your professional experience. It’s astounding how great an impact your presence alone makes on these kids.
There are three ways you can participate in a Design4Kids workshop.
- Journey with us as a Globetrotting Mentor
- Join us online as a Virtual Mentor
- Contribute to the mid-project critique as an Online Reviewer
