We're growing and need to get clearer about how each member of our team is doing, especially as we're assessing our needs and bringing on new staff. We haven't ever had a formal evaluation program, now might be the time to start.
We're growing and need to formalize some of the information practices we've had, and introduce some (such as a more formal evaluation) that we've never had!
The mission of GlassRoots is to ignite and build the creative and economic vitality of greater Newark, with a focus on under-served youth and young adults, through the transformative power of the glass art experience.
Since its founding in 2001, GlassRoots has engaged tens of thousands Greater Newark-area youth with its services, including its core Youth Entrepreneurship programs, student field trips and "art-for-art's sake" classes for the public.
We harness the fire and danger of glassmaking to engage area youth. Our students develop patience, teamwork, creative problem-solving, plus the discipline and resilience they need to safely work with 2200 degree fire and molten glass. They gain hands-on experience in chemistry, physics, and math. They become young entrepreneurs as they develop and market their products.
They join a vibrant community in which all learn from each other. Our young artists grow stronger each time they forge glass, and experience the power of their own creativity.
