Brooklyn Children’s Theatre provides youth with a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment to discover and hone their talents and life skills through the collaborative art of musical theatre.

- Through the rehearsal process students learn discipline, respect, and the value of hard work and a positive attitude.
- Through ensemble work, students build a strong community in which they learn commitment, trust and how to depend on one another.
- Through live performances, students develop confidence and learn to take risks.

We especially seek the participation of students who have a gift to give the art of theatre who would not otherwise have theater or performance opportunities, due to economic or cultural barriers or lack of resources in their schools and communities. BCT fulfills an underfunded need in which all students are welcome, regardless of their economic situation. No child has ever been refused for an inability to pay.

In 2015 BCT started OASIS, a program that offers free classes to students living in family shelters. BCT is looking to hire OASIS Chaperones for the 2017-2018 school year.

Responsibilities include:
- Pick up children punctually from a family shelter in Flatbush, Brooklyn.
- Bring the children to their BCT classes (in either Park Slope or Fort Greene).
- Pick up snack on the way to class.
- Manage the behavior and ensure the safety of OASIS student(s) for all time between pick-up and drop off, especially when the student(s) is/are not under the direct supervision of a BCT teaching artist.
- Report any dangerous or troublesome behavior to the supervisor within 24 hours of its occurrence.
- Other duties may include homework help and playground supervision.

The ideal candidate would be able to commit to at least one regular shift per week, lasting approximately 4 hours.
