Youth Quilting Class

The next Youth Quilting session will begin on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 and run for approximately 12 weeks to the end of March.  Youth ages 10 -18 are invited to join us for a fun opportunity to learn the art of quilting.  Cost is $15 for the session per student, or $10 per student if more than one family member joins.  If you have not already paid your Youth Membership Dues through June 20, 2019, then an additional $10 per student is required.  Students who have been in any classes since July 1, 2018 have already paid their Membership Dues and do not need to pay again at this time.

Please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested in signing your child(ren) up as class size is limited and spots are filled on a first paid basis.

Thank you,

Request for C4K Proposals – SU19 College for Kids Program – Deadline to Submit is January 16th

The holidays are fast approaching, and before we get busy with all the festivities, it’s time to remind you that College for Kids proposals are due soon. Last summer’s College for Kids at Yavapai College was fantastic! A lot of effort goes into this program, and we hope you are as excited as we are to make the summer 2019 another positive experience for our children!

We expect to have the course listings posted online by March 20, in time for parents to begin making decisions right after Spring break. In order to have the classes put together and a schedule printed, please submit your proposal no later than January 16 (the sooner, the better)!

SU19 College for Kids classes will meet Monday through Thursday in two (2) sessions:
Session A: June 3 through 20
Session B: July 8 through 25

If you are interested in teaching for the College for Kids program, please submit a proposal for a new course or let me know if you want to repeat the course(s) that you offered last year.

To repeat the same course(s) as last year, please email nancy.ostapuk@yc.edu with your proposed schedule, including course title, dates, times, supply needs, classroom aide request, and any pertinent information or changes that would affect the tuition cost.

If you want to teach a new course, please submit an electronic proposal form:

College for Kids – NEW Course Proposal

If you know of others who are interested and qualified to teach for the College for Kids program, please pass this information along to them. We are looking for instructors in all areas: math and science, computers, digital photography, arts and crafts, music, dance and fitness, as well as other creative ideas.

Please remember your fingerprint card must be current for you to be eligible to teach in the College for Kids program. If you hope to teach and do not have a card, it can take 6 weeks or more to get one processed.

Looking for Teachers/Homeschool Classes at Yavapai College’s Community Education Program

Nancy Ostapuk, Director of the Community Education program at Yavapai College, reached out to me to help spread the word about building and supplying some year-around homeschool classes for our local homeschool community. We’ve emailed a bit back and forth so I would like to include some of the things she has mentioned in her emails. If you find yourself interested in becoming an instructor (paid!) or you are interested in enrolling your children at regular cost or on scholarship, keep reading!!

I’m the director for the Prescott Community Education, College for Kids, and EDventures program at Yavapai College. Every summer, we offer over 40 classes for children ages 5-17 and this past summer, many parents were asking why we don’t offer courses year round for children who are home schooled.

I would like to explore this option and like to speak with anyone who’d be willing to share their passion and expertise by offering non-credit courses to children. During the spring semester, classroom availability is greater on Friday/Saturdays. The non-credit program shares classrooms with the credit-side of the college and we plug classes into the holes wherever we can. During the summer, classroom space is limited because the college is closed Fri-Sun but we can strive to address any issue. My deadline to recruit new summer College for Kids’ courses is January 16, 2019. (Please refer to the flyers below for more detailed information about becoming an instructor.)

I would encourage any parent, wishing tuition assistance, to fill out a scholarship application. The amount of scholarships available differ each year. Last summer, awards went to everyone that submitted an application: one course per child.
