Volunteer: Mentor Orientation


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Use your skills as a caring, adult role model by becoming a Free Arts Volunteer Mentor! All Volunteer Mentors start by attending Volunteer Mentor Orientation.

This one hour, no obligation orientation is held each month at our office located at 352 E. Camelback Road, Suite 101 in Phoenix. Join us to learn how you can give your time to Free Arts and make a difference in the lives of our community’s most vulnerable children.

Opportunities include:

-Weekly Mentor Group: A group of children and you, alongside another Free Arts Mentor, at a foster care group home or shelter for a one-hour art-making session each week. Together we make a schedule that fits the needs of both the mentors and our partner organizations

-Free Arts Days: Mentoring children during one-day art events at places like the Phoenix Art Museum, Desert Botanical Gardens, and Arizona Opera

-Summer and Intermission Camps: Mentoring children while they create, heal, learn and grow during immersive 1-2 weeks of meaningful interaction

-Professional Artist Series: Mentoring children that are being led by a professional in their medium including dance, painting, sculpting, welding, and more. Are you a professional artist? Come learn how you can join our roster of fellow artists!

-Office volunteering, internships, art supply drives, and more
