Apply to Pipeline’s amazing FREE domestic study abroad to rural and tribal parts of Washington State for spring break. Applications to Literacy Arts Alternative Spring Break are open until January 13th.
The Pipeline Project recruits a group of UW undergraduates to volunteer on a literacy arts project with elementary, middle or high school kids in rural Washington during spring break. The UW students are sent out in groups of 5 to 10-12 sites to help young students come up with an idea for a book, write a rough draft, edit the draft, and print and bind a single-signature book. The young students illustrate their published book and present it to the community at the end of the week. At a few sites, Pipeline tutors will be working with middle school and high school students doing college prep mentoring.
Each team will collect students’ stories and artwork and bring it back from the project to compile in a magazine to send out to all of the student participants. Selected stories will be featured in the magazine and all of the stories will go on the web. Following the project, the stories need to be edited and the magazine designed.
DATES: March 19-24, 2017
