Director-in-Training Volunteer Program
Kid Stock is excited to announce our new Director-in-Training (DIT) Volunteer Program for summer volunteers! Volunteering with Kid Stock is an ideal addition to a teen’s portfolio for all aspects of the performing arts industry, and site leads can serve as references for future jobs if volunteers excel.
Trainees will get a more focused, rigorous training experience this year, leaving them with classroom management skills, instructional skills in both their primary and secondary areas of interest, and essential job skills that can be applied to any industry.
The program will include a pre-camp training session, regular learning check-ins throughout the course of camp, and personalized goal-setting meetings to ensure each trainee gains the skills they need to be successful in a future Director role with Kid Stock!
Who can apply?
The program invites rising high school freshmen and sophomores to apply. No prior work experience is required, just an interest in the arts, a positive attitude and an open mind.
What do D.I.T.s do?
Kid Stock Theater Camps produce a play over the course of three weeks. DITs do everything from choreograph dances and direct the choir to building sets and playing improv games. Volunteers will gain experience in four arts disciplines—drama, dance, voice and visual art— as well as essential job skills that translate to any workplace.
