The National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) is pleased to announce that its chapters are scheduled to host Project Pipeline Summer Camps across the nation.  This initiative is aligned with the organization’s focus on introducing architecture to and create interest in minority youth.  Project Pipeline Camps are informative and fun while providing hands on experience.

SoCal NOMA’s Architecture & Engineering Summer Camp provides an opportunity to teach and to engage youth about the process and impact of architectural design.  The program is designed and taught, primarily although not exclusively by local minority architects, engineers, interior designers and urban planners.  The 2017 Summer Camp is our eighth Annual endeavor and will create architectural design projects, which foster greater connection with the local community by addressing a recognized need within the community.  The camp is designed to teach the basics of architectural design, inclusive of mapping, site investigation, sketching, scaled drawings, model making and presentation skills.

We are looking for volunteers and mentors for the camp to help inspire young minds to think critically about the built environment around them.  Our project site this year is in the City of Inglewood, which is going through a monumental renewal that is sure to change the economic landscape of Inglewood for many years to come.  The summer camp will give young people the opportunity to explore learn and be a part of than change.
