The Program Toolkit Consultant is a two-year contracted position and is integral in the development of a comprehensive program toolkit for Young Storytellers flagship storytelling program, Script to Stage. The YS Script to Stage Toolkit is intended to include all materials needed for program partners (schools and community organizations) to run independent storytelling programs that empower young people to write short scripts inspired by their interests and lived experiences, and bring to life the creative work of young people through the support of those in or reflective of their communities. Program partners will be expected to lead program sessions and recruit and support mentors who help guide students through the script writing process. The toolkit will include, but is not limited to, lesson plans, logistical guidance around program and mentor management, training videos, and student workbooks.
After reviewing YS program materials and discussions with our team, the Program Toolkit Consultant will create logistical materials to help future toolkit partners run their own independent Script to Stage programs. They will work closely with YS Education Director and Curriculum Strategist, who will oversee the refinement of YS lesson plans and creation of toolkit videos. The Program Toolkit Consultant will also be responsible for toolkit design to ensure that it is easily digestible and reflective of the YS brand, mission, and values.
