As a central member of the p:ear team, the Kitchen Coordinator will work collaboratively with leadership and program staff to offer 2 healthy, nutritious meals per day. p:ear’s food program is the hub for shared meals that provide homeless young people with the opportunity to create and share food with other students, staff and volunteers and instills a sense of belonging while providing an experience for them to know they are cared for, appreciated, and worthy of being nurtured.

From Art Coordinator Will:
On July 11th the p:ear art program got the chance to spend the day in Seattle. This trip started with youth and staff meeting at p:ear at 7:30 am, loading a north bound Amtrak train and getting back to p:ear at 10:45pm
On this trip we went to the Chihuly Gardens of glass (and amazing museum of glass sculptures by renown artist Dale Chihuly), The Space Needle, The MoPOP (Museum of Pop Culture) and the Seattle Aquarium. This trip was filled with educational and artistic experiences that engaged all in attendance.
