Volunteer &
Service Learning Weekend
April 17-19, 2015


Learn a new skill and leave a legacy!
Help make North House a better place to be a student.

It takes many hands to make a folk school, and our Volunteer & Service Learning Weekend is your chance to pitch in. Journey North April 17-19 and help us air
out campus after a long winter. Options include taking part in volunteer
projects outlined below, or taking a reduced tuition-rate Service Learning Course (see below). Here’s to the first sign of spring – airing out the House!


It’s been a long, cold winter on the North Shore; it’s time to dig out and start preparing for the summer season! Join us at North House for the annual Service Learning and Volunteer weekend. Heat and hammer metal or chisel out joinery destined for years of use on the North House campus in one of our formal service learning courses. Interested in lending a hand in other ways? Chop wood, pack up the yurt, or apply a new coat of varnish to our beloved and well-trodden floor in the blue building. Any way you slice it, you’ll get a few square meals out of the deal (including wood-fired pizza, of course), and time well-spent with friends at North House.


A great way to learn new skills while also helping North House is by participating in any of the Service Learning courses during the weekend:

- Tools for the Shop: Service Learning in the Blacksmith Shop
- Sawhorses for the Shop: Service Learning in the Woodshop


Volunteer projects will take place April 17-19. We’ll hit the ground running on Friday with projects of all sizes – from varnishing the floor, to refinishing picnic tables, to chopping wood. Lunch will be provided Friday, Saturday as well as a pizza potluck on Saturday evening. Please RSVP with Program Coordinator Matt at or call 218-387-9762 by Friday, April 3.
