Kids in grades 8-12 are welcome to join.
- What is the time commitment?
Kids decide their own time commitment based on the initiative they decide to work n. Some kids spend 1-2 hours a week and some 3-4 a month. Some kids work on long term-on going activities and some work more on project-based activities.
Along with this we ask you to commit to a minimum of a year -if you can do more than one year that’s ok too.
- Are there meetings?
Yes, kids have a monthly meeting (about an hour) and a debrief meeting (about 15-20 minutes). Due to Covid- meetings are virtual but maybe in person once things open up.
