Providing advocacy & resources for the field of theatre for young audiences.

Join a TYA/USA Task Force





We are seeking candidates to join a variety of TYA/USA Task Forces.

Our Task Forces are led by TYA/USA Board Members in collaboration with the Executive Director. They are comprised of a mix of board and TYA/USA member leadership. They support the staff and board in visioning and executing a variety of activities of the organization.

Following a selection process, chosen candidates will serve on a Task Force for a year-long term.

Positions are open on the following TYA/USA Task Forces:

* Festival and Conference Planning Task Force
* Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Task Force
* TYA/USA National Awards Task Force
* TYA Today Magazine Task Force
* Fundraising and Sponsorship Task Force

We are seeking TYA practitioners representing the diversity of the field – artists, administrators, educators, and students. Task Force members are expected to participate in at least (2) phone calls a year and offer some independent work and support for a range of activities as available. As a member-driven organization, it is important to us that TYA/USA members play an active role in the direction and leadership of the organization.

TYA/USA is committed to representing the full diversity of the field within the TYA/USA Task Forces. To that end, individuals of all races, ethnic backgrounds, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities (including people with disabilities who may require special accommodations), and ages (21+) are strongly encouraged to submit.

Deadline January 31, 2018. Submit interest by completing an application form HERE.

Candidates will be contacted for follow up conversations and interviews. While we will not be able to include all individuals who submit, we hope to welcome several TYA/USA members on to Task Forces in the spring of 2018.
