Welcome to the official site for employment opportunities at MICA. At MICA, we value diversity and empower our employees to use their talent in a variety of ways. We are pleased that you are interested in career opportunities offered at MICA.
This position is only available to those who have applied to the CAC program through the Submittable application and who have signed a letter of commitment with the CAC program team.
CAC AmeriCorps members will partner with out-of-school time non-profit organizations to increase academic engagement, through innovative art programming, mentorship, service-based learning, skill development, and community building. Although each residency is unique, all CAC members share the following basic service position description:
Facilitating after-school/out of school time arts-based learning experiences that serve K-12 Baltimore City Public School students;
Engaging people of all ages in community art projects that strengthen communities;
Recruiting and coordinating volunteers;
Leveraging resources and partners;
Supporting projects and initiatives that relate to direct service and capacity building efforts in Baltimore City.Â
If applicable: 2nd and 3rd Year members will serve in roles above and beyond these basic duties based on the needs of the site. They will have the opportunity to lead committees (for events and exhibitions) and serve as peer mentors for the 1st year CAC members (including leading workshops).
AmeriCorps Members who are highly skilled in various creative arts media will be placed at service sites managed by grassroots community organizations, where they will lead out of school time art and design programs for K-12 Baltimore City youth. CAC Member Artists will serve K-12 youth with art-based programs for a minimum of one hour per week, over the course of at least eight consecutive weeks. Many CAC Members will lead after-school programs that run much longer than eight consecutive weeks, but some service sites run on quarter-based schedules. CAC Members will focus on increasing confidence and self-efficacy in youth through facilitating arts programs that will teach skills in creative problem solving, critical thinking, effective communication, community building, and conflict resolution. At the same time, CAC Members will teach students art-making skills that can directly translate into twenty-first century careers: from graphic design, to product development, to mastering new technology, and business entrepreneurship. CAC Members will serve 600 youth (or more) throughout the year, with a target of increasing confidence levels in 200 youth.
