Call for TSA Volunteers: Gingerbread City: Kids’ Main Street Facilitator

Want to inspire the next generation of city-builders? Love working with children and inspiring creativity? Then come join us as a Facilitator at our Kids’ Main Street Program as part of this year’s Gingerbread City!

Looking to expand our family and youth programs, this year the TSA is introducing a one-day kids workshop as part of Gingerbready City, an annual event that brings together architects, designers, and gingerbread lovers alike to create unique edible creations. Kids’ Main Street is a special section of Gingerbread City where kids (ages 7+) will be invited to design and make the facades of their own main street buildings. There will be two sessions throughout the day and all the facades will be put together to form one delicious thoroughfare.

Kids’ Main Street Facilitators are team players who enjoy working with children and getting crafty! No baking or gingerbread knowledge is required, but if you have previously worked with kids that is always a bonus!


What to expect?

Facilitators are expected to attend a one-hour virtual briefing in the weeks prior to the event and be in attendance at CSI Spadina from 9:00 – 4:00 PM on December 3, 2022. They will aid in running the program, including helping children with their creations, using kitchen appliances like mixers, setting up/cleaning up, and other general events assistance as required. All supplies for the event will be provided along with detailed instructions.

Are you a baker and want to lend a hand in doing some pre-event bakes and setup? Let us know in your application form!

The Kids’ Main Street Program will be held on Saturday, December 3, 2022.
