The Mayo Street Arts (MSA) Summer Youth Program provides students ages 5-11 from our East Bayside neighborhood with free, no cost arts-based literacy programs. The morning session focuses on reading help for students ages 5-7 and the afternoon RAD! (Reading! Art! Dance!) program provides students ages 7-11 with literacy skills via the a wide variety of arts experiences and field trips to destinations through the community.
Teaching Associates and Volunteers will work directly with MSA’s Community Outreach Manager to provide a welcoming, safe environment in which students from our East Bayside neighborhood and the surrounding community can participate in a variety of performing and visual arts, improve their written and spoken English language skills, and gain self-confidence.
MSA staff conduct regular business in English, however many of our neighbors in East Bayside are non-native English speakers. Special consideration will be given to individuals with proficiency in other languages, especially French, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Somali, and Lingala.
MSA’s Summer Youth Program Teaching Associates will work approximately 20 hours per week from July 5 – August 18, 2022. Volunteers may sign-up for 1-4 days per week. A mandatory training for all associates and volunteers will also take place on Friday, July 1.
Morning associates and volunteers will arrive at MSA ready to work by 8:00 AM and stay through clean-up at the end of lunch, until approximately 1:00 PM. Students ages 5-7 will attend the morning session.
Afternoon associates and volunteers will arrive ready to work by 12:00 PM to prepare lunch and stay through student pick-up and clean-up at the end of the day, until approximately 5:00 PM. Students ages 7-11 will attend the afternoon session.
