Volunteer Role: Field Trip Chaperone

About the program: The Museum by Susan Verde inspired second-graders to explore their intuitive responses to art and write about the experience. After accompanying the class to Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City, field trip chaperones will guide small groups of students as they view the exhibits and choose a piece that resonates with each one.
