Join us and inspire young lives on a Saturday afternoon!  We are seeking volunteers to lead creative workshops that are approximately 45 minutes in duration for various age groups including children under 17 as well as youth ranging from 18-21. Ideas for workshops include: book readings, poetry readings, art classes, pottery, music, sketching...(we are open to suggestions).  Team leaders would lead classes of approx 15-30 patrons.
