92Y is looking for a Program Manager to join its Center for Arts Learning and Leadership (CALL), a team dedicated to delivering exceptional arts & humanities education to K-12 students and their teachers at public schools across New York City and beyond.
CALL connects school communities with leading artists, writers and thought leaders to help students discover their intellectual and artistic passions, identify resources to pursue those passions and shape the future of their world. Programming takes place both in-person—through multi-week, curriculum-based residencies at our partner schools—and through live performance, exhibitions, talks and readings at our historic cultural center. Through our flagship program—the Young Leaders Series—CALL has developed a digital-track education offering to expand upon 92Y’s mission of connecting students with limited exposure to arts education with exceptional artists and thinkers, and we are now reaching beyond our building’s walls and city limits to take our mission to schools both near and far. We’re seeking candidates who are passionate about the arts & humanities and want to help foster the next generation of leaders in the cultural space and beyond. If this sounds like you, apply to take the first step in joining 92Y’s incredible CALL team!
