TRIANGLE: Teachers Wanted!

Wednesday, March 18 5-6 PM

If you’ve resolved to be more involved and have a positive impact in your community in the new year, we hope you’ll consider volunteering with Arts For Life at Duke Children’s Hospital! Our volunteer and intern teachers make a real difference in the lives of our patients and families—all while having fun and being creative.

Want to learn more about teaching opportunities at Duke?


Join us for a special Info Session on Wednesday, March 18, at the Volunteer Center of Durham.

You’ll learn more about Arts For Life’s educational visual art, music, and creative writing programs and the volunteer and internship experience. Information session attendees are invited to bring all questions to the March 18 event. More details about volunteer as well as internship opportunities, including an online volunteer application, can be found at

Teaching volunteers and interns must have skills in the arts, enjoy working with children, and be 18 years of age or older. Volunteers are expected to teach lessons weekly to patients and their siblings.

“I spend each Friday at the hospital, and that makes it the best day of my week,” says former intern and current volunteer Lauren Ling. “It’s amazing to watch a young child fully immerse themselves in the process of making art, leaving behind the beeping IV poll and the fear and discomfort surrounding treatment. It’s a triumph for art to be the reason a patient wants ‘10 minutes longer’ before going home.”
