Cause - Other

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition." -Steve Jobs

Dungeons & Dragons DM - Teen Program

The White Plains Y is looking for a dedicated volunteer who can help us run one or more Dungeons & Dragons campaigns over the course of the Summer. We have a small group of teenagers who enjoy roleplaying through campaigns and all we are lacking a DM who can provide a good experience. Volunteers do not necessarily need experience with Dungeons & Dragons - just a creative mindset and a willingness to learn. This would be taking place primarily in the evening during the week, although there might be some flexibility based off of the availablity of the teens. Role Requirements Volunteers applying for this position should be aware that campaigns can take days or weeks to complete. An ideal volunteer would be able to keep a consistent schedule throughout the Summer. This is also a position that benefits greatly through performance and creativity - although not required it always helps when a DM can act and voice characters to help with the immersion of the campaign. As with all of our volunteers, background checks are required and volunteers will need to be cleared before they can start working with the youth.
