“Since beginning my apprenticeship at NYCCT, I have grown exponentially as both an artist and educator. As Education Apprentice, I was given the opportunity to co-lead six in-school and after-school residencies for students ranging from kindergarten to 6th grade. Through these residencies, I was able to vastly improve my ability to effectively plan lessons for diverse populations. This experience has been truly educational, enlightening, and most importantly, FUN! I am grateful to have had this opportunity and to be a part of the NYCCT family.”

“NYCCT demonstrates immense devotion to making the arts more accessible to young children, and is also a warm and welcoming place to work. I am extraordinarily thankful that I had the opportunity to be a part of NYCCT this past year as it was an amazing place to grow creatively. The education apprenticeship is uniquely special because it opens up the door to become a better teacher, and provides the opportunity to discover the inner workings of a non-profit organization. I would highly encourage anyone interested in learning more about arts education to apply for this apprenticeship!”

“NYCCT is an ideal place to work, learn and grow. During my time at NYCCT, I had the unique opportunity to take on both small and large scale projects. All of the work that I did was valued and I always felt my efforts made a major impact on the company. Working at NYCCT gave me the confidence and the experience necessary to be a competitive applicant for positions on the management side of theater companies.”
