Why Work at Arts Corps?
Founded in 2000, Arts Corps is a multidisciplinary organization in Seattle that provides free arts learning opportunities to young people from kindergarten through high school. Our programs encompass school-based programs, out-of-school time classes and teen leadership programs with an emphasis on serving young people from marginalized communities. Through these programs and local and national leadership, Arts Corps addresses a critical opportunity gap in a region where race is the greatest determining factor in access to arts education.
Arts Corps classes are proven to build persistence and other “21st century” skills and creative habits such as imagining possibilities, thinking critically and exercising discipline – skills that build a foundation to help young people reach their full potential in school and in life. Students who are highly involved in our after school programs attend school more often and perform better in school than their peers not involved in Arts Corps programs. In 2012, Arts Corps received the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award from the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, which recognizes exemplary arts and humanities education programs across the nation.
Arts Corps has grown significantly over the past several years, and our new OST Best Start Kids Programs Manager will have the opportunity to make a profound impact on young people and on the trajectory of this dynamic organization.
Arts Corps is an Equal Opportunity Employer. People of color, queer, gay, lesbian and bisexual people, transgender, genderqueer and/or non-binary folks are encouraged to apply. This position is rooted in anti-oppression, encouraging critical thinking and dialogue about how intersecting systems of oppression impact our work.
Arts Corps is committed to the personal and professional growth of its employees. We work hard to build a supportive, respectful and celebratory community among our staff, board and volunteers, and we have a remarkable retention rate of staff. We look forward to finding the next member of our extended Arts Corps family.
