Chaperone a College Tour!

We have a morning college tour planned for March 25, 2019 at Columbia University and this is your chance to lead it! Serve as thought partners to students as they are introduced to the world of colleges and college applications. Work closely with college tour facilitators to encourage conversation centered around college life. Must be comfortable engaging teens.

Itinerary will be planned out for everyone by the Program Manager.

IS/HS 422 M - Quest to Learn, based in Chelsea, has an innovative educational philosophy developed by top educators and game theorists at The Institute of Play, with funding from The MacArthur Foundation. They follow game-based learning with 7 principles including everyone as a participant, challenge, learning happens by doing, feedback is immediate and ongoing, failure is reframed as "iteration," everything is interconnected, and it kind of feels like play.
