Student Host Program

Student Hosts hold a unique and important role at the Folk School and are involved in the overall life of the school for several months. They develop relationships with students, staff, instructors, and community members and become a vital communication link among them.

Serving as ambassadors, Hosts help students and instructors have a rewarding, creative, and comfortable experience. This includes guiding students as they adjust to the living, dining, and studio experience unique to the Folk School.

The Host is responsible for: welcoming groups, communicating announcements, helping in the dining hall, leading nature walks, setting up studio and event spaces, and serving as after-hours contact for students and instructors.

Hosts receive housing and meals during their stay and can take classes every week with tuition covered. Materials fees are specific to each class and are the responsibility of the student. Some choose to explore a wide variety of media, while others focus on honing a particular skill.

Applications for the 2022 Student Host program have closed. For the latest information, check this website, sign up for our eNewsletter, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

The Folk School is an equal opportunity organization and does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, religious affiliation, nationality, or ethnic origin. All students must be at least 18 years of age.
