Position Title: Production Assistant
Under the supervision of the Executive Assistant to the Director, the production assistant will help with pre-production and day-of logistics for a ballet performance at the Cantor Arts Center.

Candidates should understand the nature of a performance and be interested in what it takes to bring a performance to life.

The assistant must be available the day of the performance as well as the day before for the performance for the dress rehearsal.

Position Title: Family Sunday Ambassadors
The Cantor Arts Center is hiring twelve Family Sunday Ambassadors to work during the highly popular Family Sunday program in the summer. Candidates should be highly motivated, reliable individuals who demonstrate interest in art or museum work, take initiative, exhibit strong communication and interpersonal skills, and enjoy working with families and young children. Ambassadors are expected to work on average two Sundays per month for at least six months; excellent attendance is a must. Hours are 12:15 to 3:30 pm. To apply, please submit a cover letter and one-page resume with the subject line, "Family Sunday Ambassador," to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that candidates should not apply to a single role; Ambassadors will be trained to fulfill all four roles and will rotate on a weekly basis:
Studio Assistants work with a professional art educator to present unique studio art-making experiences each week. Responsibilities include explaining the lesson, elements of art, and techniques to families, maintaining art supplies, preparing materials, assisting the art educator as needed, and managing setup and cleanup of the studio.
Welcome Table Assistants are the first point of contact for Family Sunday visitors. In addition to informing families about Family Sunday activities, they ensure the smooth flow of visitors. Responsibilities include greeting family visitors, providing families with information about the day's tour and art project, managing tour and art-making sign-ups, tracking metrics, and helping guide families in and out of the art-making studio.
Art Pack Assistants manage the organization and distribution of Art Packs, which contain materials for visitors to use independently in the museum. Responsibilities include signing out Art Packs, explaining museum guidelines, maintaining the quality of the materials, circulating throughout the galleries to engage families in thoughtful drawing experiences.
Tour Assistants help docents lead tour groups by tracking the time and number of participants, recording notes and comments, managing group dynamics, and helping families move through the galleries. Family Sundays offer four half-hour tours; after the final tour, tour assistants will use their remaining time to assist with studio art-making or art pack duties.
