Web Site:

The Florida Foundation for Architecture, along with AIA Florida & AIA Florida Gulf Coast, is launching the Architecture in Education program this April at Bay Haven Elementary School in Sarasota!­ The eight-week curriculum-enrichment program matches professional architects with classroom teachers and sharpens a student's math, social studies, art, and other core academics with real-life, project-based learning.

We would like your help!­ The program will begin April 4 at Bay Haven.­ On Tuesday afternoons for 8 weeks, architect volunteers will teach a 90-minute session on various architecture topics from 2:15 - 3:45 PM to the four 4th-grade classes at Bay Haven Elementary School.­ All lesson plans and materials are provided!

Program Duration: 90 minutes every Tuesday afternoon, 2:15 - 3:45 PM, April 4 - May 23

Please indicate which days you are available to teach using the sign up form below:


We have committed to providing one lead volunteer in each of the four classes, who will be present for each of the eight Tuesday afternoons (2:15-3:45 PM), and a second volunteer in each classroom who will assist.­ Please volunteer as your schedule permits - we need 3 more permanent volunteers and additional volunteers for as little as one Tuesday, or all 8 sessions!

I will act as the School/Program Coordinator between volunteers and the school.­ My role will be to coordinate logistics, materials and messages between volunteers and the school administration.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at­ You may also reach Lisa O'Donnell at AIA Florida: (850) 222-7590 or

Thank you in advance for helping build an awareness for architecture amongst our kids: our profession's future clients, decision-makers, members, occupants and opinion-holders.
