Job Description:

MTCC Summer Associate - Zootown Arts Community Center

The Zootown Arts Community Center is a nonprofit art center providing accessible arts experiences for all through education, exhibitions, and events. The ZACC's summer program aids in increasing graduation rates for Missoula youth by serving low-income students and by fostering frequent arts participation, which leads to improved grades and standardized test scores, reduced dropout rates and boredom in school, and a healthier self-image (Catterall, 1997). These results correlate to increased civic engagement, and the National Endowment for the Arts reports students of the arts are more than twice as likely to volunteer in their communities than are students with little arts participation.

Member Duties : the Summer Associate will help mentor over 300 youth in over 25 summer art and music programs at the Zootown Arts Community Center. Programs are designed to build confidence, foster creativity, and build strong relationships with the community. The Summer Associate will assist in recruiting high school students for volunteer opportunities in ZACC summer art camps to build leadership skills. Additionally, the Summer Associate will help create learning opportunities for students throughout the summer by assisting in ZACC's summer education programs. Finally, the Americorps member will work directly with youth in our summer programs that are designed to increase confidence, creativity, social responsibility, and community investment- all things that are proven to increase youth's chances at pursuing a college education.
