Deadline has been extended to tomorrow! 

Be a part of an exciting year-long project working with Native youth in Neah Bay! Pipeline is recruiting now for members of the 2016-2017 team!

Are you interested in immersing yourself in the beauty and richness of the Makah culture? Do you love working with elementary school students? Do you want a deep, engaging, non-traditional learning experience in Washington State?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, consider applying for the "Telling Our Stories: Neah Bay" project via a partnership between the UW's Pipeline Project and Neah Bay Elementary School. During the 2016-2017 school year, a small group of UW students will take part in a year-long project with students from this Native community. Using oral histories, digital storytelling, and photography, UW students will learn about the rich history and culture of the Makah people while mentoring 5th-6th grade students to create a digital storytelling project to celebrate their own Native culture.
Note that this project will require a 3-quarter commitment as well as a 2 week partnership experience during September in Neah Bay. Students will travel to Neah Bay during one of these weeks. There will be a weekly seminar during autumn, winter, and spring quarters that all students will attend. Students will also travel to Neah Bay during Spring Break.
There are no fees (besides tuition) for this amazing opportunity, and students will earn up to 12 EDUC401 credits. Applications and resumes are due on Catalyst Tuesday May 31, 2016 at 5:00pm. The application questions are attached to this email.
