WORK STUDY

�Working at North House was everything I hoped it would be. I was able to work as much as I wanted, and was encouraged to take time to enjoy Grand Marais as well. I loved being there.�

�Connecting with North House staff and community members
was integral to our really positive experience :)�

�I really enjoyed getting more in depth information about the interns and about the school's programs. It was also nice having time beyond the workshops to talk with teachers.�

�We want to reorient our summers around Work Study!�

WORK, STUDY, ACCESSIBILITY � these three words capture the vision of the Work Study Program at North House Folk School. It is an opportunity to work in a program support/community service role on campus while earning credit towards taking an upcoming course in traditional craft. Work Study is part of North House's scholarship/accessibility program. See our Work Study Brochure by clicking here.

WORK STUDY OPTIONS:
WEDNESDAYS AT 1 PM YEARROUND & SPECIAL EVENTS
Setting up campus each week for an upcoming weekend of classes is a huge task, and we can always use help! Expect to earn 2-3 hours of course credit per week. In addition, there are many tasks before, during and after special events that qualify for Work Study credit. Applications are welcome anytime.
