Apply to be a PAA Summer 2018 volunteer

Public Art Africa (registered as the Initiative of Public Art in Africa) is a youth led non-profit organization run by mentors and youths from various parts of Lagos. Youths use creativity to engage the community in Human Rights, Health, the Environment, etc.

The organisation is interested in working with volunteers on two programmes this summer.

1) PAA Summer Programme takes place between July and August in various locations from Ikeja to VI. The purpose of this summer programme is to expose students to different careers and professions so that they can start thinking about future careers for themselves. It is a series of excursions to a number of companies. It is an opportunity to show the kids that there are amazing people in Nigeria doing amazing work.

2) The second programme is a summer screening series in partnership with some organizations in Lagos. It takes place for 10 days in August for youths from various parts of Lagos. A series of films will be shown and volunteers will be needed to work with students after the screening on activities including drama, arts & crafts and poetry.

The volunteers will act as chaperones for the students during excursions, making sure to promote the organisation’s mission of using creativity to build Africans for the future. They will also be expected to be positive role models and be keenly interested in making positive impact on the kids.

All materials necessary to effectively mentor Public Art Africa youths will be provided. Volunteers should make sure they dress appropriately and comfortably. They are required to be:

– punctual
– enthusiastic
– encouraging
– engaging

 

Volunteers will be required to participate in a training in Lagos on Saturday, July 28, from 10am-4pm.

This opening is for volunteers resident in Lagos.
