About Creative Art Works
Creative Art Works (“CAW”) is a 34-year-old nonprofit that empowers young people through the visual and multimedia arts. Working in underserved NYC neighborhoods and institutions, CAW provides dynamic, creative youth development for those who would otherwise lack access. Our programs equip children, teens, and young adults with essential life skills, connect them with communities, academic success and career opportunities, and inspire them to reach for new possibilities.
As part of the CAW’s leadership team, the Program Director will provide stewardship and vision for the program department. Through a deep understanding of transformative arts education, he/she will oversee a dynamic portfolio of cultural partnerships in four core programs: Public Art Youth Employment, In-School Programs, Out-of-School Time Programs, and Community Art- Making Programs. Through program evaluation and professional development of staff and teaching artists, the Program Director will deepen the impact of CAW’s programs in the lives of
the youth and communities it serves.
