Attendance Records is looking for teaching volunteers to assist in the classroom this fall! We wanted to give a little more information about what being a teaching volunteer with Attendance Records entails! Our volunteer orientation will be on September 27th from 6-7pm at the George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center. Please send an email to email@example.com to confirm your spot and learn more about this exciting opportunity! If you cannot make the orientation and still want to volunteer, please send an email to let us know!
Mission: Attendance Records is dedicated to bringing creativity back into the classroom by connecting teachers and students with local writers, artists, and musicians. By providing students with the opportunity to write, design, and produce their own album, students will build confidence skills that will result in discovering what makes them unique.
Our curriculum is broken down into two components:
In the fall we will focus on writing. We will cover theme, style, and perspective with an emphasis on poetry and songwriting. There will be several visitors from the community ranging from a writing professor to a hip hop artist to the two participating bands who will record our second album.
In the spring we will focus on the visual aspect of creating the album as well as DIY promotional projects for our benefit show: We will cover zine making, screenprinting, album artwork, photography, graphic design, and blogging and writing press releases. There will be several visitors from the community ranging from an art professor to a graphic designer to local radio personalities.
Volunteers will be asked to commit to at least one month in the classroom. We visit the classroom once a week for an hour and half. We want to ensure that volunteers are able to be completely involved in one section of our curriculum and that students are able to connect with their small group volunteers.
**All volunteers in the classroom are required to complete a background check.**
Looking forward to a great semester,
Attendance Records Staff
