Teach at Sprout

Unfortunately, we are not running Sprout in Fall 2023, but check back in the future for updates!

As a Sprout teacher, you can inspire eager middle and high school students by sharing your passions with them. You design your own class and can teach ANY topic you think is interesting. You can lead a workshop, give a lecture, teach a skill, or run an activity. ANYTHING from politics to economics to chemistry to boomerang-throwing to film analysis! You can teach either a 1-hour core class that meets for all three weeks of the program or a one-time 1-hour elective.

Need ideas?

What is the time commitment?

Teaching at Sprout has a big impact but it takes very little time. Besides the actual time it takes to teach your class, you may be asked to attend a session with a Splash admin to go over any questions you have and receive feedback on your class idea.
