Solas Project: Drama Teacher / Facilitator

Solas Project

Drama Teacher / Facilitator

Context of this role

Solas Project runs After Schools clubs, drop ins and safe spaces for children and teenagers growing up in a challenging environment in the Dublin 8 area. We want to provide them with the best opportunities for personal and social development. Our goal for each of the young people is that they grow in self-worth, character, and motivation, and ultimately can reach their full potential.

Your role

You would come in one afternoon a week (Monday – Thursday) to facilitate a drama course with the children / young people. You’d be responsible for the preparation and structuring of the classes. You would not be responsible for the supervision of the children – there will be staff and volunteers always present. The course and delivery can be as creative as you wish. Our goal is for the children to have fun and develop positive attributes through the process of participation in activities provided.

What are we looking for?

Experience in facilitation or other work with young people/ children. A background in the area we’re asking for – appropriate skills. A qualification would be a bonus, but not necessary. You will also need patience, enthusiasm, empathy, a personable approach. We need you to commit to showing up for agreed sessions. We’ll need you to adhere to Solas Project’s policies including our Child Protection Policy and code of behaviour.

What will I gain?

This is a great opportunity if you’re looking to gain experience in this area. You’ll receive support from our staff youth workers. Join us in providing opportunities for young people and working towards creating a more inclusive, equal society.

Time Commitment: 1 – 2 hours once a week for a 6-week period. With flexibility.
Start date: September 2022
Application deadline: Monday 29th August 2022
