Interested in teaching middle school students about architecture and design? Become a mentor in the AIA Chicago Foundation’s Architects in Schools (AIS) program. We will be teaching in two schools this fall semester.
The training session, Sept. 13, 6pm-7:30pm at AIA Chicago offices, will briefly review each lesson plan, outline various mentor levels and necessary time commitments, offer tips on working with students, and more.
AIS is an initiative that brings architecture professionals into classrooms to introduce middle school students to the field of architecture and to discuss the broader theme of architecture as a change-maker. It is a 7-week long program, with 2-4 practicing architect volunteers visiting a single classroom once a week for the duration of one class period (90-120 minutes).
The program is run by the Community Interface Committee.
