At Big Picture Philadelphia, visitors and volunteers are always welcome!
Big Picture Philadelphia invites individuals and groups to visit and volunteer at each of our schools: Vaux Big Picture High School and el Centro de Estudiantes. Each has its own unique character and event offerings. If you are interested in any upcoming event listed below, click on the image of the event to access its registration page. As the year progresses, new events will be listed, so check back often to see how you can get connected and be involved. Visitors are always welcome, and volunteers are always needed.
El Centro Demo Day: Demonstration Day is practice internship interviews for Gateway (entry level) students at el Centro. Volunteer supporters are provided with a set of questions and prompts, and an evaluation rubric, to conduct a real world internship interview with individual students. This is a tremendous opportunity to provide a transfer of skills to students, many of whom have not interviewed at the professional level. Click the image to sign up for one interview (one hour) or more.
El Centro Student Exhibitions: The Student Exhibition of Learning is a comprehensive student presentation of learning over a full trimester. Each student at el Centro presents to their Advisor, Advisory (class) and supporters, which include family members and volunteers. Individuals are invited to volunteer at individual student Exhibitions to provide verbal and written feedback that will be used in the students' next trimester, or in their post-secondary plans. Click here to sign up for one student exhibition (one hour) or more.
