Opportunities for youth at BARN
We hope youth and families find many opportunities to become active at BARN. The classes and programs listed in the Youth Calendar are either specifically designed for youth or have been “tagged” by studios because the event topic might be of interest to youth. All classes at BARN are open to 14 and above, unless noted otherwise.
High school students in grades 9 – 12 are invited to create and hang out at BARN on Teen Nights! Come enjoy free food and drink. Play games in the BARN Commons. Explore a Studio project and learn new skills. Bring friends. Meet new friends. Click here for more info.
Middle School Maker Mondays:
Middle Schoolers: come on over to BARN after school on early release days for our Maker Monday sessions! Our first session is under way, and our second session “Techniques in Pastry” will be starting November 2nd.
Girls Who Code club:
BARN is hosting a free Girls Who Code club once again for the 2019-20 school year for girls in grades 6-12. The club meets every Thursday afternoon (except school holidays) from September 26 through March 5th, from 3:45 – 5pm. Girls are guided through a progression of computer & programming skills throughout the year! Our club is full for this year, but please check back in early September 2020 for information on next year’s program.
More ways to get involved:
In addition, we are developing other opportunities for youth to share their knowledge and enthusiasm, engage our artisan studios and learn from BARN Artisans.
Youth Council: High school and middle school students can help guide and direct BARN’s youth offerings.
Internships: BARN is fueled by volunteers. Join the BARN team as a volunteer, and as a high school student, you could apply for an unpaid Work Experience Credit.
Community Service: Get involved in any of the community service projects at BARN.
Independent Studies/Mentorships: If you are interested in Independent Studies through your local high school, contact your school counselor.
Partnerships: We would love to chat with representatives of schools, youth and community groups on how to connect our programs with yours.
