Industry Listing, Job Posting.

The Canadian Opera Company (“COC”) has articulated a vision of bringing the transformative experience of opera to our local, national, and global audience every day of the year.

To help achieve this plan, the COC is looking for a creative, energetic, organized, and adaptable person with a passion for opera to develop its after school-based and opera programs for children, youth and families.

In addition to programs for schools, and adults, the COC offers an array of events and programs including after school programs, summer camps and youth programs, and family activities.

Reporting to the Associate Director, Education and Outreach, the Children, Youth & Family Programs Manager is primarily responsible for programming, co-ordination and administration of the COC’s After School Opera Program, summer opera programs for children and youth; creating new programming for families; programming and supporting other public engagement initiatives; devising effective and engaging resources for children, youth, and families; fostering new and maintaining existing community and artistic partnerships; facilitating programs when necessary; recruiting, training, scheduling and supervising artist-educators, program assistants and volunteers; data gathering, analysis and reporting; updating the children, youth, and family program webpages; devising marketing and promotional materials; and managing programming revenue/expenditures.

As the COC runs over 20 education and outreach programs, all Education and Outreach staff take an active role in support of events outside of their area of focus.

The Children, Youth & Family Programs Manager position is an intermediate level, salaried, full-time, permanent position. Evening and weekend work will be required.

Further information on Education and Outreach programs is available on the COC website at
