KCYA Internship Program


KCYA Community School of the Arts offers full and part-time internships
during our Spring Break Camps and Summer Camps 
(dates vary year to year)


This is an excellent opportunity to get teaching artist training from some of the best artists in the region, as well as learn how an arts education program is run.  


Intern duties include serving as a classroom assistant and communicating with teaching artists, parents, and students about administrative policies. Interns will be responsible for helping groups of 5 – 16 young people throughout their camp day. Responsibilities will include overseeing snack breaks, lunch and restroom breaks, cleaning up after students, and classroom participation.


Interns serve as a liaison between the artistic and administrative aspects of the Community School of the Arts. As such, interns will have the opportunity to observe and assist accomplished teaching artists. In the classroom, interns can expect to learn classroom management techniques, time management and lesson planning skills, as well as various games and activities to be used in numerous classroom settings.
