AIA Chicago Foundation Architects in Schools Volunteer Form
Architects in Schools (AIS) is an initiative focused on bringing 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. Volunteers engage the students in critically analyzing their neighborhood for opportunities to create positive change and utilizing architecture as a means for implementing solutions.

The program is structured as a 8-week long commitment, with 3-5 practicing architect volunteers visiting a single classroom once a week for the duration of one class period (90-120 minutes). The curriculum consists of an introduction to architecture and design, design exercises, a final group project, and a field trip.

This year we will be teaching in Chavez Elementary (Back of the Yards) and Sawyer Elementary (Gage Park).
We are looking for lead mentor and assistant mentor positions. The schedule is below.
Chavez, 4747 S. Marshfield., Tuesdays 8:00am-10:15am; April 3, 10, 17, 24; May 1, 8, 15, 22
Sawyer, 5248 S Sawyer Ave., Fridays 8:15am-10:00am; April 6, 13, 20, 27; May 4, 11, 18, 25
