ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION


Since 1971, Jamestown Community Center has been providing learning opportunities and safe spaces for lowincome
youth in San Francisco’s Mission District. Our youth represent the low-income, racially and ethnically
diverse community in which they live and attend school. Our strategy is to serve a core group of
neighborhood youth with multiple, high-impact programs as they grow through a full range of programs
designed to help them transition from children into confident young adults.
For over 25 years, Loco Bloco has promoted San Francisco youth’s healthy transition into adulthood by
engaging them in the creation and performance of music, dance, and theater rooted in Afro-Latino
traditions. Loco Bloco encourages its youth to use multicultural art forms as a tool for their own
empowerment and as a catalyst to help them overcome discrimination and bring about change in their
communities.
Both youth development organizations had long established track records of providing enriching, high quality
programming to youth. We believed that our shared commitment to youth development, our shared love for
the Mission community, our shared experience in developing leadership among low income youth and families,
the excellence Loco Bloco brings to arts programming and performance, and the expertise Jamestown brings
to academic enrichment, sports and youth development, coupled with our long history of mutual collaboration
can result in a better, stronger, more efficient and sustainable organization made up of Loco Bloco and
Jamestown.
Programs now include Arts instruction, performance and production educational enrichment, academic
tutoring, sports, leadership development, employment, counseling, and parent programs. Throughout these
programs, Jamestown aims to provide all participants with the highest-quality youth development experience.
This approach builds young people’s resiliency as they face their daily challenges and supports their natural
inclination to pursue their own growth into healthy, productive young adults.


POSITION OVERVIEW


Teaching Artists will use music, dance and/or theater traditions rooted in Afro-Latino traditions (including
Afro-Brazilian, Samba, Samba Reggae, Afro Cuban, West African, Hip Hop, Afro Haitian, Salsa, Merengue) as a
tool for healthy youth development, empowerment, leadership development, community building and activism.
Teaching Artists facilitate in-school and out-of-school time residencies, classes and workshops for youth in
grades K-12, Transitional Aged Youth (18-24) and families. Loco Bloco Teaching Artists should exhibit
professional and cross-cultural skills and design and deliver youth-centered curriculum focused on equity and
social justice. Teaching Artists craft opportunities for students to develop positive relationships with one
another and perform/engage with their community as artists.
