Each year we have a few work-study positions. The position includeshalf off the Regular Retreat Price, bus transport to and from New York if needed, and a few other perks.
The Work-Study program is intended to serve those who are passionate about getting to the Retreat but truly can't afford the full-price ticket. We will review your application and e-mail you back to let you know if we still have spots available.
Tasks may include:
Assisting the Director
Assisting the Coordinator
Assisting the Crew
Maintaining a Rec Hall (steady drinking water supply, clear trash, mop floor in dance halls)
Moving drums around the retreat
Setting up class spaces
Cleaning up class spaces
Assisting with drum rentals
Assisting with the Wula Store
Assisting with Sign-Ins and Sign-Outs
Backstage help at the Saturday performance
Helpful but not required: driver's license, cell phone for texts, reading, writing, drawing, French, Spanish, Portuguese language skills, teaching experience, performing experience, experience with Cultural Arts
Ideal candidates will be at the Retreat for the full duration (Tuesday-Sunday). We are looking for team players who can handle the stresses of a large event and who are committed to the success of the event.
Each assistant will still be able to take classes, but we may ask you for something during classes. You can tell us what you are most interested in and we'll try to make sure you can attend all those classes. You will only be working a couple hours per day, but may need to be available before and after the classes.
