The Next Generation College Buddy Program is an opportunity for MICA students to connect with the youth arts community of Baltimore. Once a month, students will meet at Baltimore Design School (can work out virtual accommodations) with a 10th-grade buddy who is interested in learning more about MICA and college life. The monthly meetups will be fun and engaging opportunities to connect with youth about art, portfolios, college life, and other similar interests. The first College Buddy event will be held on Thursday, December 2nd, but there will be an interest meeting with all MICA students beforehand. If you're interested, please contact AmeriCorps VISTA Marley Scheld by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (201) 580-0030.
