Theater Teaching Artist, Student Voice and Engagement Program

Partnership with Children (PWC) is a nonprofit organization committed to empowering students to reach their full potential and succeed in school, society, and life. We work to provide school-wide critical counseling services, as well as family and community outreach in New York City public schools most impacted by the effects of poverty and trauma. We are one of the citys largest providers of community school programs and school-based mental health services.

PWC recently merged with the Center for Arts Education (CAE), an organization that has delivered high-quality arts education programs that nurtures the development of social and emotional learning in NYC public school students as a core part of their pre-K to 12th grade education. PWC and CAEs programs and approach are rooted in an understanding of the impact of poverty and trauma on children, a steadfast commitment to antiracism, and expertise in childrens social-emotional wellbeing.

Together, PWC and CAE have created high-quality arts and social-emotional learning programs that expand services for all school partners and ensure that creative expression is a tool available to all students. To further this work, we have received the Arts in Education Grant from the US Department of Education (USED) and are hiring our team of Student Voice and Engagement (SVE) Teaching Artists.
