Summer Administrative Apprenticeship | The Viola Project

The Viola Project

The Administrative Apprenticeship Program is geared towards emerging Arts Educators. The apprentice will help coordinate all 7 summer camps – from pre-camp prep work to post-program wrap up. You’ll work hard, meet amazing young women, observe programs, and spend time around a lot of Shakespeare.

 

TIME COMMITMENT

The summer begins with a training meeting in June, date and time TBA. After this, Apprentices will work a total of 16 days between June 18 – August 10. Some days will be assigned, but most can be scheduled around other commitments.

 - City Lit Theater in Edgewater - 1020 W. Bryn Mawr Ave, Chicago, IL 60660

 - Austin Gardens Park - 167 Forest Avenue, Oak Park, IL 60305

Both camps are easily accessible via the CTA. Administrative work will be done around each location.
