Providence ¡CityArts! for Youth is deeply committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive artistic community through its programs and hiring. ¡CityArts! seeks applicants for employment from a diversity of backgrounds and perspectives, and does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, ethnicity, religion, age, protected veteran status, disability, or any other legally protected status.
CityArts depends on great educators to bring quality learning experiences to our youth. We look for teachers to lead our regular classes, but we also accept proposals for new classes. If you are highly skilled at your craft, have past experience working with youth, and are over the age of 18, we’d love to work with you!
