We do not currently have an open application for Teaching Artists. However, we do have a particular program need for individuals who, in addition to having significant experience delivering arts-integrated instruction, are: a) bilingual and able to teach in both Spanish and English, OR b) live on the periphery of YA’s tri-county service area (Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington counties.)

If you meet one or both of these criteria, please feel free to reach out to [email protected]. Thanks!
