We’re wrapping up what has been an exciting Maker Corps 2017! Check back this fall for the partner site application for Maker Corps 2018. Happy Making!

What is Maker Corps?
Maker Corps is an online professional development program that provides training and a community of support to youth-serving organizations as they design and implement summer maker education programming. Read the full program description here: Maker Corps 2017 – Program Description.

Who are partner sites?
Maker Corps partner sites are youth-serving organizations, such as science centers, children’s museums, schools, libraries, and community organizations, looking to develop or grow their maker education programming in order to provide young people with opportunities to tap into and expand their creativity, curiosity, and confidence. Leadership at partner sites provides day-to-day supervision of at least one Maker Corps Member who is employed at their site during the summer.
