RISD Peppers


Published on

The volunteer training process
for Project Open Door has been
unorganized and impromptu, without
a planned calendar, explanation of
the layout of the program, guidelines,
responsibilities, and a social
approach to teaching high school
students. Due to these inadequacies,
a proper training process needs
to be implemented to make the
transition as a volunteer a smooth and enticing one.
This mission of the Peppers initiative is to improve Project Open
Door’s after school program through a coherent three-part volunteer
engagement process
