Mentor a Future City Minnesota team!
Engineers, city planners, and other professionals with technical backgrounds: you are invited to volunteer as a mentor for the Minnesota Future City Competition (FCC).
Future City mentors volunteer once per week (virtual or in-person) from September to January. Mentors provide advice, guidance, and technical assistance as the students work on the various project components. In the early weeks, you’ll meet with the team to get to know the students and focus them on the big picture: good urban design, an overview of the essay topic, and brainstorming possible solutions. Later, you’ll help with the model, teaching the students about scale, and working on the presentation. Making yourself available by email to review things like the essay and ideas of futuristic components is helpful too. A teacher is also present when you meet with students. Learn more
