Are you a fashion designer or know someone who is?! YAX is looking for faculty for our fashion design program starting this fall.
Artists are hired as part-time Youth Art Exchange employees with living wages, earning paid leave and other benefit accruals rather than as independent contractors, which is most common for arts programming. Additionally, Youth Art Exchange invests in the professional development of its faculty; compensation includes attendance at conferences, workshops, and coaching.
Faculty members are paid for 1:1 teaching and preparation time, as well as monthly faculty meetings, special events, field trips, and exhibitions. Academic year faculty work approximately 8-12 hours per week at $26-33 per hour, depending on experience. We aim for high faculty retention and most artists continue from session to session.
To be considered for a faculty position, please submit your resume and a cover letter describing your interest in the position, discipline + practice, vision for building a youth program in fashion design, dedication to working with youth in the arts, and relevant education + experience to info @ youthartexchange.org.
