Aequora Site Manager

The Paideia Institute is seeking a part-time Aequora Site Coordinators to help grow and manage our Aequora program, an outreach initiative that partners with universities, schools, and community organizations to offer introductory Latin classes for elementary and middle school students. Aequora is shaped by a belief that everyone should have access to Latin and by a vision of Classics as an inclusive, diverse, and socially engaged field. 

The Aequora Site Coordinator’s main duties will be reaching out to schools in order to find and establish sites for our after-school Latin and literacy program. The coordinators will then connect schools with volunteers and help facilitate starting the program. The coordinators’ duties may include: communicating with school leaders and faculty, leading and developing volunteers, visiting sites, and ensuring the quality of programs. 

We are seeking a dynamic, detail-oriented professional with a background in the humanities, connections with local elementary schools, and an ability to speak passionately about the value of studying Latin. The coordinators must be based in the DC metro area or the New York City area, as the job requires site visits in the spring. Coordinators will work approximately 5 hours per week from November 2021 to June 2022.  

Please send a resume and a cover letter via email to [email protected] with the subject line: Aequora Site Coordinator Application. Applications are open until November 1st, 2021.
