We are seeking mission-driven and dynamic part-time intern teaching assistants for our Adaptive Dance Programs – specifically The Autism Project.

Teaching assistants must be able to commit to attending all class sessions (assistants can choose which class times fit their schedule), as well as a two-hour training workshop.
