The Center for Applied Drama and Autism (CADA) is seeking to add new teachers and
project staffers for the upcoming 2022-2023 season. Teachers are part-time, quarterly
positions, with each session lasting ten weeks, one hour each week. Pay averages
$200-250 per session. Project staffers serve as mentors, co-actors, directors, and/or
technical support for a variety of projects. Stipends average $500-600 per project
depending upon time involved. Past projects have included CADA’s One Act Play
Festival and the Virtual Variety Show.
The ideal candidates are those with teaching experience, particularly with disabled and
autistic youth and adults, combined with a theatre background. For those interested in
acquiring some of this experience, CADA is offering fellowships.
Fellowships include six hours of online professional development on Saturday, August
27 from 9AM-4PM ET, for which the $300 fee is waived. Student Teaching will take
place over ten weeks in CADA’s online fall session. Student teachers will be paired with
a CADA teacher and will learn how to develop goals, plan, lead, mentor, co-act with our
students, and provide progress reports at the end of the ten weekly classes. Upon
successful completion of the CADA fellowship program, paid part-time opportunities will
be made available to participants.
Paid opportunities this season include teaching online and live on-site, leading
workshops, mentoring actors through CADA’s co-acting techniques, assisting with
projects including providing technical support with inclusive podcasting and YouTube
events. All positions are paid through state and local grants.
If you would like to apply for a teaching position or be considered for a fellowship,
please send a brief paragraph as to why you are interested in our program and attach a
resume with references. Background checks are mandatory for all employees.
