Please be sure you can commit to all of the dates in bold. We understand something unexpected and unavoidable may arise. We ask you to understand the extreme importance of you being there consistently for your kids. Please note the first 6 dates are weekly on Tuesday’s starting Oct. 4, but then there’s a long break. The schedule resumes in March 2023 for the remaining three dates.
All five Field Trip days will start and end at the school address below. KIF will provide the bus that everyone will take to and from each field trip. Each mentor will have the same two kids throughout the program. Additional details, including file-management instructions, will be sent to those who sign up. The Pre-Program Meeting (on Oct. 4th at 6pm) will review the program in detail, answer any remaining questions you may have, provide you with the names and backgrounds of your kids, and allow you to meet the other mentors.
Later in November, writers work with the kids in-person to write the caption titles and captions. This group of kids will join two other groups from spring after-school programs at the incredible field trip to Mutoh and again at the Exhibit Opening. There will be other optional opportunities to see the kids during the long break, including the Annual Picnic on December 10th (details to come).
The kids’ images taken during this program will be unveiled at the Annual Exhibit Opening on March 30th, and will then travel around the Valley to various locations, starting at the Arizona Science Center.
