Phillips Educators (PEs) are essential to facilitating the museum’s tours and programs. As key members of the Education Department, PEs help museum guests see, connect, and engage with art in new and unexpected ways. PEs are trained in student‐centered approaches and empower guests to express themselves and their values, opinions, and thoughts. Phillips Educators work with Education staff to facilitate school and adult tours. Additionally, they will support select programs that reach family, community, and public programs.

● Facilitate interactive tours for a variety of audiences, including Pre-K-12 and university students, adults, and families.
● Collaborate with fellow PEs and Education Department staff
● In addition to public and private group tours, PEs can help facilitate extended school partnerships, Member Mornings, Art & Wellness programs, teacher professional development, family programs, Creative Aging, and other community and public programs.

PEs do not necessarily need to be proficient working with all audiences and all types of programs. PEs will have the option to sign up for different types of tours and programs, based on their and the Education Department’s needs, abilities, interests, and schedules. Rather, flexibility and an eagerness to learn is pivotal to success in this role.

$25/hour for prep, set-up, and training; $35/hour for assisting with a program; $50/hour for leading a tour or program.
