Mentors play an integral role in the learning process and have a profound impact on the students we serve at Islands of Brilliance (IOB).

As a Design Mentor, you have the opportunity to work 1:1 with students to help them bring their ideas to life. From the initial stages of sketching and designing through project completion, Mentors guide students through the process while teaching basic creative software and technology skills. But it’s not as much about teaching software, it’s really about forming a connection and guiding students in the making of creative projects.

If you have empathy, a dash of patience, and a huge heart, you’ll fit right in at IOB!

Mentors are valued members of our IOB community. We offer mentors a $100 stipend for each Foundation Workshop series they sign up for as a thank you for the commitment and service to our students. Each series is made up of 4x 90-minute sessions. We offer both in-person and virtual mentoring opportunities.

We need Mentors with experience in one (or more) of the following programs:

  • Photoshop
  • Illustrator
  • Procreate
  • Blender

About IOB:

Islands of Brilliance (IOB) is a learning experience developed specifically for children and young adults on the autism spectrum.

Rather than expect students to adapt to the environment, we created the ideal environment. IOB utilizes project-based learning that allows our students to grow their intrinsic capabilities and practice communication, increasing their likelihood of independence as adults.

Our student-focused programming is rooted in art, design, and STEaM-based curriculum. It helps children and young adults learn valuable technical skills, practice critical social and emotional learning competencies, all within a supported environment. Best of all, our students have a place to share their unique voice, ideas, and creativity alongside peers that relate to, understand, and motivate them.

Welcome to Islands of Brilliance. We can’t wait to meet you!
