Resident Advisors play an
integral role in the quality of YoungArts programming and the mentorship of our
YoungArts winners. For that reason, YoungArts has developed a selection process
designed to identify qualified individuals.
The selection process provides
an opportunity to share with us your qualifications for the Resident Advisor
position. It takes exceptional people to fulfill the many roles of a Resident
Advisor and therefore, we take special care in selecting individuals with
potential to develop leadership skills and grow within the YoungArts community.
Currently, YoungArts hires
resident advisors for 5 programs: YoungArts Finals Week, YoungArts Los Angeles,
YoungArts Miami, YoungArts New York, and Presidential Scholars in the Arts
rehearsals and performance. You may
request specific programs but be advised that, with the exception of National
YoungArts Week, YoungArts aims to hire locally for regional experiences when
possible. Also note that being available
for multiple programs increases your chances of placement.
