Do YOU Have a Passion for the Arts and Serving Communities?

There’s officially 1 MONTH left to apply for ArtistYear’s early decision deadline on December 1st, 2022!

Pursuing a service year in the arts may be the right choice for you!

Why ArtistYear?

At ArtistYear we train & place exceptional arts graduates as Resident Teaching Artists (RTAs) to address inequities in creative learning at K-12 schools across the nation.

What is the role of a Resident Teaching Artist (RTA)?

An RTA’s role is to enter into a school community and provide arts instruction or exposure where it may be lacking. RTAs have the opportunity to fill in the gaps in a unique way outside of the parameters of being a teacher or a sub.

Where Can I Serve?

Moore & Lee Counties, North Carolina
Denver, Colorado
Aspen, Colorado

How will a service year benefit me?

1.       Build lasting connections with your students and cohort of Resident Teaching Artists.

2.       Receive best in-class professional development grounded in trauma-informed practices and restorative justice

3.       Opportunities to expand your network with ArtistYear alumni and external partners to help inform your career path post service

4.       Financial benefits including a living stipend, education award, and student loan forbearance.

How do I apply?

Applications are now open for the 2023-2024 Program Year! (Positions begin July 2023). Please use this link to submit your application!

Middlebury Area Land Trust Looking to Hire a Graduating Senior: Stay in VT to Protect the Land You’ve Learned to Love!

HOT OFF THE PRESS: MALT (Middlebury Area Land Trust) was awarded an AmeriCorps member position for the 2022-2023 year. The position serves 450 hours during any time between September 2022 and August 2023. This is a new format for us and we’re wondering if a Midd student could be a good fit, serving the hours over the course of the upcoming 2022-2023 academic year.  We’d like to recruit a student before the fall so we have time to plan with them before the academic year begins.

We’re looking for someone who:

  • would fit well in a small environmental non-profit setting
  • wants to connect people with the outdoors
  • skills and interest in any combination of mapping, conservation and land stewardship, recreation trail work, and/or environmental education with youth
  • availability to serve 450 hours over the academic year

The compensation works out to be about $15.00/hour including the stipend they receive for future education costs (or existing student loans).

We’re in the early stages of shaping the experience, so if you might be interested, please reach out to MALT’s new Education Manager, Simon Schreier, simon@maltvt.org.

Vermont Youth Conservation Corps’ Food and Farm Program is Hiring

The Farm @ VYCC is hiring for several AmeriCorps positions! 
 
The Vermont Youth Conservation Corps’ Food and Farm Program is a dynamic youthdevelopment, diversified agriculture and food security initiative. We believe in the power that food has to connect us to the land, our community, and each other. We engage young people in organic farming and culinary education on our historic 400-acre campus in 
Richmond, Vermont where we grow organically certified vegetables and pasture-raised chickens that are distributed to more than 400 families through our 
nationally recognized Health Care Share program. 
 
Project Leads (7 positions) 
 
Project Leads serve on the farm from freezing March mornings, through sweaty July days, until crisp October evenings. They serve out in the fields, in 
greenhouses, work with livestock, and jump in to problem solve the daily challenges of the farm. Project Leads bring their adaptability, commitment, 
and passion for food & farming to the farm program. 
 
Crew Leaders (7 positions; 5 youth crew leaders and 2 production crew leaders) 
 
Farm Crew Leaders’ responsibilities shift across the season. Spring is for learning and doing: tending crops in greenhouses and planting the fields; working with volunteers. In summer, they lead either a youth or young adult crew. In fall, they harvest mountains of vegetables in support of Health Care Share program. There are two types of Crew Leader positions- leading a crew of youth or young adults. Regardless of age, crews work in all areas of thefarm; they plant and harvest, care for livestock, and explore how to cook with what they’ve grown.
