Posted by St. Augustine Academy After School Program on May 21, 2019

St. Augustine Academy After School Program (no religious affiliation), located in Norristown, PA, is seeking 3 apprentices to complete a 9 month training program over the course of the 2019-2020 school year.

Specifically seeking qualified candidates in the fields of visual arts, dance, and music with prior teaching experience.

Apprentices will receive a $2500 stipend for participation.

Program Description: St. Augustine Academy is a free, after school program for girls in grades 1 through 4. The mission of SAA is to build character, instill a positive sense of self, and provide tangible life skills through a creative curriculum of arts exploration, academic reinforcement, and emotional learning. SAA provides a safe, stable environment where students practice respect for self and others, exercise appropriate interactions with peers and adults, discover new skills and talents, and develop tools that will allow them to achieve greater success in school and beyond.

SAA is investing in program and curriculum development that builds upon its arts based foundations while infusing a trauma-informed method in order to better meet the needs of our community. Part of this capacity building project will include the training of teaching artists in our specific teaching methodology so that all classes are trauma-informed and provide equitable opportunities for growth academically, artistically, and socio-emotionally.
