Sneak peek: Seesaw Studio

1 Sep

I’m still early into this volunteer project and I feel lucky to have found Seesaw Studio this soon. Being in the creative field I have a soft spot for arts programs, especially ones encouraging kids to explore their artsy side. For the past twelve years they’ve provided the roadmap for Triangle youths to become successful, creative adults. In addition to teaching the arts, which is lacking in so many schools, they are also teaching what you can’t find in any school – entrepreneurship.

Through a (too small) staff of two and a cadre of professional volunteers, they foster and lift up students’ ambitions to send them soaring into the community with newfound skills and confidence.

Look for more about Seesaw as I dive in, including some pics and video. In the meantime check out their site and Facebook page for more about what they’re up to and how you can help.

Welcome. Time to make it loud.

Over the coming weeks I’m going to start the volunteer project, first is a bit of house cleaning duties – getting the blog and Twitter set up. I’m also working on finding some non-profits who are interested in participating. Thanks to some wonderful friends and friends-of-friends this is moving along nicely.

Thanks to those who have been my sounding board and helped me to make the project even better–namely Beck, Jeff, and my wonderful wife, Dawn.
