Mayo Street Arts is currently seeking Teaching Associates & Volunteers for our Summer Youth Program!

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.
