NAF Future Ready Scholars at UW-Milwaukee

Summer Camp Design/Build College Counselors (June 5-16, 2023)

Do you like to build things? Are you interested in hands-on construction? Working in the woodshop or makerspace? Making an impact in the community? Working with high school students? If so, apply for the summer college counselor position.

UWM in partnership with NAF, MPS, and MATC will be offering a teen summer design/build camp. College students will work alongside a small cohort of high school students to design, build, and install a community engagement project at the scale of a room-sized pavilion (program to be determined).

It is hoped that the selected candidates will help motivate and lead the team through the design-build process, while also assisting the instructors with organizational or administrative tasks.

Design and build a project with local impact on the community
Engage with hands-on construction
Make connections with architects, engineers, and construction trades partners who design and construct buildings in Milwaukee
Create things in the SARUP fabrication and woodshop facilities
