- Participating in the life of New Urban Arts’ afterschool studio on a daily basis;
- Creating meaningful relationships with youth;
- Teaching, coaching, and editing students in a wide range of writing styles, including poetry, lyrics, and various forms of prose, such as fiction, creative non-fiction, academic writing, and college essays.
Overview- Youth Engagement Associate
The Youth Engagement Associate ensures that New Urban Arts is a welcoming, supportive space for everyone. They help maintain a healthy, supportive social atmosphere in our afterschool programs by building relationships with as many students as possible, connecting students to artist-mentors and each other, anticipating potential conflicts, and communicating continuously with the rest of the program staff about the needs and concerns of students. The Youth Engagement Associate builds community among students, mentors and staff. They also have data entry duties.
