Interview with a 7th Grader

Even if you missed the Jan 30 meeting, please come to the Feb 15 session if you can.

The 7th Grade teachers from MS 839 in Kensington have requested the help of GNPS members for their students community outreach program. We are looking for GNPS members who would be available both Jan 30 and Feb 15 at 10:30 am for a one hour intereview, in person at Sip and Play on 5th Ave between 10th/11th St.

We prefer that you be available for both, but if you can only come to one or the other, that would be fine. 

The first meeting,  Tuesday January 30 will be a meet-and-greet. Students will come with some icebreaker questions and other getting-to-know-you activities. We imagine this will last for about an hour, 10:30-11:30am.  We'd like our students to partner up to talk to one senior.  This meeting will be at Sip and Play, 471 5th Avenue, between 10th  and 11th St


For the second meeting will be Thursday February 15 at the same location, at 10:30am. The students will come prepared with questions about what key ideas, events, or people influenced them. Ideally our seventh graders will have the opportunity to interview the same person, however, we welcome all.

Registration is required
Payment In Full In Advance Only
If you are more comfortable wearing a mask, please do so and we will request the kid you are paired with wear one as well.

1. We are hoping to do follow up matches with the same pairings as last time, if possible. Not all the same GNPS members will be able to attend next week, so we do need 'new blood'
2. Questions this time will be more focused about how key events, ideas or individuals impacted you. The kids will be taking notes during a portion of the interview.
3. The teachers would like to take photos, so just let us know at the event if you don't want to have your photo taken
4. We are being asked to bring a photograph or any other meaningful object or memento, if possible - show and tell?
Cancellation Policy:
Please respect your host, as well as the other GNPS members who have registered, by cancelling your registration if your plans change and you cannot attend.
Thank you.
