The Making Our Own Space (MOOS) after-school program seeks project proposals from design professionals to lead a series of youth engagement workshops based in Cleveland’s Buckeye Neighborhood.

MOOS PROGRAM BACKGROUND
Making Our Own Space (MOOS) is a program focused on engaging and empowering middle and high school students with the skills to transform their local public spaces. MOOS uses hands-on, on-site workshops to build physical and social infrastructure in collaboration with the surrounding community. The program helps students understand the connection between learning and the broader world, specifically by exposing them to a range of design careers. Initiated in 2015 by Kent State University’s Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative (CUDC), the program’s first series of workshops focused on Britt Oval in Cleveland’s Buckeye neighborhood and made possible by support from the Saint Luke’s Foundation.

 

JOB DESCRIPTION

  • The Design Leader must commit to leading at least 4-5 consecutive days of workshops sometime between May to December 2016.
  • Workshops will take place from 4-7pm on weekdays during the school year and longer workshops (10am – 7pm) are possible during summer vacation (May 29 – August 15), providing a more intense and productive build experience. The Design Leader should propose desired date ranges for the workshops and preferred length of each workshop day.
  • Design Leader must commit to at least 40 hours working directly with MOOS students during workshops, in addition to the time required to prepare for the workshops.
  • Design Leader should have the ability to collaborate effectively on a team and an interest in working closely with youth.
  • The position is open to designers of multiple disciplines, including architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, graphic design, industrial design, and other allied professions.
  • The position requires the use of sharp blades and power tools, which do present the risk of personal injury.
  • Design Leaders should have demonstrated fabrication experience and ability to instruct students how to safely use hand tools and electric power tools, including hammers, drills, circular saws, etc.
  • The Design Leader will be provided with a $4,000 stipend (plus costs for travel and accommodations, if based outside of Northeast Ohio).
