Dave Gates

Education Specialist - Remember When Outreach and Summer Programming

Dave Gates started as a volunteer at the Society assisting with special events and programming along with the collaborative down at Lock 3 as part of the Akron History Exhibit. After retiring from Summit Metro Parks, Dave started working with the education department for Remember When where he developed the outreach program on Understanding the American Hobo.

Besides going on the road for the Society traveling to six different counties for Remember When presentations, Dave recently conducted a twelve week pilot camp as a collaborative between the Society and The Salvation Army.  This program will be expanded for future summer programming for elementary students.
