The Saturday Art Class Coach programme is a part time teaching programme where each Coach will be responsible for one classroom for the entire academic year (August 2019 - April 2020). This entails the Coach’s presence in the classroom every Saturday for 2 hours.
Consistent interaction of students with their coach helps build trust and a lasting relationship. This stable foundation enables coaches to create a strong impact in the children’s lives.
The coach’s role involves delivering the Saturday Art Class curriculum with the help of mentors and parent leaders from the community. To ensure that this is done smoothly, every coach will attend weekend training sessions with the Saturday Art Class team twice a month.
All coaches will also be involved in the Saturday Art Class Exhibition that takes place in April, at the end of every academic year. This would be a culmination to the end of year community project that the Coach delivers along with the classroom and the community.
The coach will also take charge of the operational requirements for each lecture (coordinating with the Saturday Art Class team to ensure that the materials and other resources are available in time). He/She will be the contact person for the school authorities and for the mentors and parent leaders attached to his/her classroom.Express Interest

Through the Saturday Art Class Mentor programme :
The Saturday Art Class Mentor programme is a part time volunteering programme where Mentors will be responsible in aiding a Saturday Art Class Coach in conducting classes for the duration of a semester. This entails the Mentor’s presence in the classroom every Saturday for two hours through the semester *
(*Note : Each semester consists of 4 months ; Sem 1 is Aug - Sept - Oct - Nov and Sem 2 is Dec - Jan ‘20 - Feb ‘20 - March ‘20)
We have found that week on week interaction of students with mentors enables them to form connections and lasting relationships, which makes it easier for mentors to pass on valuable skills and render impact.
Hence, we require a semester’s worth of (4 months) commitment from each mentor, where the mentor has to be present in the classroom for 2 hours every Saturday during the Saturday Art Class session.
All mentors (irrespective of the semester) are also a part of the Saturday Art Class Exhibition that takes place in April, at the end of every academic year.
Each classroom of 60 students is assigned 3 mentors. Each mentor’s role involves aiding the coach or teacher in delivering the planned session and interacting with students through the course of it.
Every mentor will go through an orientation at the beginning of the semester.Express Interest
