About Being a CAC Member
CAC Members will be placed in year-long residencies at community arts organizations in Baltimore City. Members will develop curriculum, teach classes & workshops, and assist in the evaluation of classes and programs. Members will provide outreach to potential program participants, publicize opportunities & events, and incorporate ongoing feedback from children served into program planning. Members will also assist in increasing volunteers and resources. Members will design and implement community & service learning projects that can include students and other members of the community. Members are required to have experience teaching art to youth in order to be considered. In your cover letter (and in the "Motivational Statement" section of the AmeriCorps application) please describe why you are specifically interested in CAC, and why you would like to be teaching art to youth in community settings.
