Do you have exceptional Photoshop and Illustrator skills and want to beef up your resume? Perhaps you’re more proficient in Premiere and After Effects instead? Maybe you’re skillful in all four? Are you a graphic designer that want to stand out from the crowd? Or do you just have an itch to give back to community and serve our youth for a brighter future?
The Howard Area Clubhouse, a non-for profit organization working with youth in Rogers Park, is seeking graphic designers /digital media artists proficient in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, and/or After Effects to tutor teens for our upcoming projects. As a tutor, you will become an official Mentor of the Clubhouse with access to some of our resources while we can assist you in resume and career-building for your future!
Our talented youth are entrepreneurs, video gamers, anime nerds, gifted illustrators, phenomenal visual effects designers, crafty builders, and overall ambitious young people! We hold our elite team to a standard, and we have the same expectations for our Mentors.
In addition to tutoring, we encourage our Mentors to implement their other talents to our Clubhouse program. We open our arms to artists, video gamers, cosplayers, anime heads, and other nerds in between! If you are neither of those traits, that is okay too! These Mentors are more than tutors, they’re almost like the big brothers and sisters for our youth to look up to and to help achieve their goals!
College students pursuing a graphic design degree or similar is preferred, though we are open to anyone that’s a good fit for our growing team!
