Museum Education summer program at Rubin Museum

The Rubin Museum of Art is currently accepting applications for its Apprentice Museum Educator (AME) program.
The Apprentice Museum Educator (AME) Program at the Rubin Museum of Art provides essential hands-on skills to university students preparing for future careers in arts or museum education.  Program participants will leave with an understanding of the inner workings of a museum education department, Himalayan art and culture, and necessary public interrelation and education skills that will prepare them for the future.  Apprentices are trained to utilize inquiry-based teaching strategies and receive weekly training on the collection and special exhibitions.  Apprentice duties include giving tours to incoming school groups, assisting Museum Educators to give offsite pre-visit lessons at schools, assisting the Visitor Experience department at the front desk and in the galleries, and assisting with Teen Programs.  Apprentices work closely with the Teen and College Program Coordinator and receive mentorship by Education Staff.
To participate, students must:
· Be enrolled in an undergraduate program in a New York City College or University (Education majors or strong interest in a future career in Education encouraged)
· Be able to provide services for two consecutive semesters (Fall and Spring)
· Work 15 hours per week (Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday)
· Be at least 18 years of age; have a Photo I.D.; Social Security Card and email address.
Applications for the AME program are due June 15th, 2010.  Once applications have been accepted, a formal interview process will begin in July. Program will start in early September.  Please find all application material and a complete program description online at <> .
If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at (212) 620-5000 x337 or <> .  We look forward to hearing from your students.
