  • Summer Youth Leadership Program (Middle/High School)

    Volunteer Leadership Opportunities Available

    During the school year, Illumination Learning Studio provides opportunities for Middle-School and High-School aged students to volunteer during the week in our After School programs. This summer we are providing similar opportunities in our Summer Leadership  Program. Our staff will mentor and coach students to acquire valuable leadership skills. Acting as role models, our leadership camp assistants will motivate and inspire younger campers:

    • They will co-lead activities, run drills, and help our camp-leaders maintain a fun and safe environment for all.
    • They get to be active and involved with youth this summer. Join field-trips around the city, spend time at the park or shores of Lake Washington and Golden Gardens.
    • They will discover the value of working with a team of camp leads and encouraging the participation of our younger campers.
  • Interested individuals should request an application and return it to ms.ali@ilskids.com by April 30th, 2018. Informal interviews will take place in early May with decisions announced Mid-May with an orientation day in June.

    • As parents we strive daily to make decisions for our kids that will allow them to become successful in life and hope we are doing the right thing. Starting our 3 year old in the ILS pre-school program this year was one of those decisions and since he started, everyday we are reminded it is one of the best decisions we could have ever made.

    • My 3 1/2 yr old who just after a short time going excels in letter recognition and their sounds, words in Spanish, addition and subtraction.

      Trish
    • I have seen so many of the kids flourish with knowledge with their time at ILS; from learning music and playing the piano to beginning reading sight words for a pre-K student.
