- 50% of a Maker Corps Member’s time must be dedicated to direct service– engaging children and families in creative making opportunities, while gaining experience serving as a community leader. Maker Corps Members will also spend a portion of their time as makers-in-residence, focused on developing ideas and programs for their partner site.
- Maker Corps Members are required to participate in the Maker Corps online community by contributing stories, photos, reflections, etc.
- Applicants must live, or be willing to relocate to, a community hosting a Maker Corps program. Note that the Maker Ed will not cover any additional moving and/or housing expenses. However, some partner sites may provide assistance. Please inquire specifically about these needs in your application.
