Greenacres Foundation (GAF):
GAF is a highly motivated service organization focused on using the assets of Greenacres to provide custom-designed hands-on active learning opportunities for children of all ages. All opportunities are customized to the needs of the visiting group which primarily consist of local school groups from K to 8. All school based programs are tied to the national and/or state standards so that they contribute to the success of the classroom teacher.
In 1988 we focused on Environment Education, had one employee and provided hands-on programs about riparian zones for 60 children. Each year we provide programs based on the environment, generative agriculture, equine, and classical arts to over 32,000 visitors. Our programs are of the highest quality. Quality Quality Quality (QQQ) is a core value.
Our dedication to our values: Grace, Good Neighbor Policy, and Green cannot be overstated. Our employees strive to be the best of the best and flourish in a team environment where outcomes are the result of teamwork. Greenacres is not just a place to work – it is a career, a lifestyle, and a place to exude passion for the Mission and Vision of our Founders – Louis and Louise Nippert. We are here to serve the community and change the lives of children.
The Greenacres Education Team is committed to creating exceptional learning experiences for each and every visitor we serve. We offer field trips for children and opportunities for educators and adults for life-long learning. In collaboration with classroom educators we build customized, hands-on interactive experiences aligned with state and national learning standards.
We employ the most curious and brilliant people. Our ideal candidate will be passionate about the Mission of Greenacres and our values. We are looking for an enthusiastic and energetic individual to join our team. Our education approach focuses on employing experts in their field who are passionate and love sharing the arts with children (of all ages). At Greenacres, we focus on visual arts, music and dance (think Symphony, Opera, May Festival, Cincinnati Art Museum, Ballet, and others). Your primary focus will be on the development and implementation of curriculum. You must be willing to provide hands-on teaching experiences, collaborate across the education department, and deliver high-quality programming.
The Classical Music Educator position works under the supervision of the Arts Education Manager.
