**This position works with incarcerated youth inside juvenile detention facilities. Fingerprinting and background check is required.


Each One Reach One pays Playwriting Mentors to work one-on-one with a young playwright under the guidance of our Playwriting Instructor to write an original, one-act play. The program helps our youth learn new tools of improvisational acting, sensory exercises, and dramatic language and structure. On the Show Day mentors support their students as they go through the rehearsal process with our professional actors, who will perform staged readings of their plays before an audience of student peers, facility staff, family members, and special guests. This is done within an intense two-week framework, which requires a 30-hour commitment.


Pay: Mentors receive a stipend of $350-$500 per two-week program, based on experience and familiarity with the EORO process.


Hours: Programs run Monday-Friday, for 2 hours in the evenings for two weeks. The final day, Show Day, is on the Saturday of the second week for 6-8 hours.
