Students and adults alike volunteer their time to help run our teen programs - about 400 in 2012 & 2013 representing over 70 Portland & SW Washington Middle and High Schools.
Whether you're 8 or 80, as long as you meet some minimum criteria - we can use you for programs, board of directors, commitees, compete, class participates, judges or just help promote.
Most of our students are aged 13 to 18 and range from 7th grade to 12th grade as the basic age for competition.
Although the guidelines for competing are different than volunteering, students that make the finals, come back year after year and continue to promote the prgram.
We also encourage college students and adults interested in pursuing entertainment to intern with Dark Wing Productions and the Foundation to get hours toward graduation or get resume' material. As of 2013, 13 students and adults have or are interning through our programs.
Many think that being a principal teen organization, that adults don't have much of a place. The truth is the furtherest from this.
Although it is true that our programs, whether saying teen or student in the title or not, are focusing on teen participants as our current goal, it is the adult volunteers that help make this the premiere program - especially our judges, instructors and speakers.
