The Museum Educator will assist with the conceptualization and implementation of educational programs, experiences, and materials for the new museum in advance of its opening, imagining and implementing engaging, historically rich audience experiences. Your responsibilities will include creative program development and implementation; planning, experimenting and iterating new programmatic experiences; volunteer management and training; collaborating with adult, teen, family and school audiences; establishing relationships with community and national Jewish organizations and Jewish thought leaders. The museum’s programs will encourage visitors to connect, reflect and act: connect across families and diverse communities, reflect on the relevance of history to today and act on behalf of their communities and values. Experiences will build on the Museum’s extensive archive of stories about Jewish Washington, as well as our collection of objects, photographs, documents, and oral histories.
You are our ideal candidate if you are an energetic risk-taker who is flexible, comfortable working outside of the box and wildly creative. You are a self-starter with fresh ideas about interpreting local and national history, and love storytelling, museums and audience engagement. You have a passion for planning, facilitating and moderating discussions with pluralistic points of view.
