FutureMakers is the mobile makerspace for grade and middle school students in the counties surrounding Baltimore and Washington, D.C. We ignite curiosity and build skills among young makers – hands-on problem solvers who tinker, build and thoughtfully play – using traditional tools and cutting-edge technologies. Developed by a team of educators and makers, FutureMakers brings maker education to public, private, homeschool and out-of-school time learning centers across the region. We believe kids need tools, not just toys.

Maker Education Coaches

FutureMakers is a growing team of maker education coaches – makers who teach, and teachers who make – with active practices as designers, tinkerers, artists, technologists, and exceptional educators. We partner with organizations and schools throughout the DC, MD, VA area to provide immersive, K – 8 learning labs where young makers play, experiment, and innovate with real tools and technologies, in material-rich environments. Our in- and out-of-school-time learning experiences foster essential connections between young makers and and visiting experts, inspiring young people to see themselves as innovators, ready to reimagine and design the world around them. FutureMakers coaches use their passions and expertise to design and build original workshops for diverse and varying communities, facilitating innovative, safe and active maker spaces for young people.

We encourage our coaches to follow their passions in and out of the classroom environment, using their own interests and skills to connect with young people. We’re seeking makers and educators who consider themselves experts in technologies, fabrication traditions, STEAM and maker education, and are ready to grow unique learning experiences that will change how a young person sees themselves in the world!

Together, you will plan, instruct, and assess your project’s progress. On site, you report to our partner site manager. You are expected to communicate effectively with partner sites, FutureMakers staff, and the students you facilitate, using their feedback to guide the quality and improvements of your workshop. Instructional teams encouraged to apply!

We develop programs that take place in community centers, libraries, schools and community sites. The majority of our programs take place in the after-school hours of 3:00 – 7:00 PM, but some take place outside of those hours, or on weekend days. Schedules are planned and discussed in advance, and are fixed. Highly eligible coaches will have the opportunity to teach in our immersion labs, an in-school program that pairs maker educators with public school teachers.

Position Type:

Part-time; 5-20 hours per week depending on experience

Compensation:

Coaches typically start at $15, but rates can vary based on experience. There are opportunities to grow within the role to earn as much as $45 per coaching hour.

We offer flexible schedules, and all team members choose coaching opportunities that fit their schedule and areas of expertise.

Food & Water Watch champions healthy food and clean water for all. We stand up to corporations that put profits before people, and advocate for a democracy that improves people’s lives and protects our environment. We are working to create a healthy future for our families and for generations to come—a world where all people have the resources they need, including wholesome food, clean water and sustainable energy. Making this happen requires organizing people from all over the country to build a large movement with the political power to make our democratic process work. Large numbers of people are a countervailing force to corporations “buying” public policy.

Community Organizers

Food and Water Watch is an international non-profit advocacy group that has fought for clean water, safe food, and a healthy environment since 2005. We’ve worked to stop secret international trade deals, stop the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms, keep our water supplies public, label GMOs, and a host of other crucial issues. We are currently working towards passing an indefinite BAN of fracking in Maryland state, before the moratorium expires next year.

The duties of the Community Organizer will be to educate the public on critical consumer and environmental issues and to help build strength in numbers to effect policy changes. We offer leadership training and advancement opportunities for qualified individuals and ensure that all staff develop valuable political advocacy skills.
