We need team managers for Destination Imagination teams at Congdon Park Elementary. I have been trying to tap out other sources before posting here, but schedules are not lining up and I’m getting desperate!
Not familiar with Destination Imagination? Check out idodi.org for more info. It can be sort of difficult to explain exactly what it is, but essentially you facilitate a group of 5-7 kids working on a project to present at a tournament on March 10. I say “facilitate” because the kids provide the ideas, and the work; adults are not allowed to do anything for them or give them ideas.
I am hoping to find someone before Dec. 21 who would be able to start meeting in January. I have two teams without managers at this point: one group of kindergarten-to-second-grade students who will be meeting Tuesdays from 2:30 to 4 p.m., and a group of fourth- and fifth- graders who will be meeting Wednesdays from 2:30 to 4 p.m. You are provided with materials for your team meetings, including a “Team Pak” purchased from DI that explains the projects the kids will be working on.
Please contact Nikki at nicole.strand @ duluth.k12.mn.us if you are interested. I can provide you with more details and information at that point! All volunteers participating in our after-school programs will be required to fill out an application and pass a background check prior to starting.
If Congdon isn’t the right spot for you, but you’re still interested in being a team manager for DI, please still let me know and I will connect you to other schools that still need team managers as well!
