5. PITT ARTS Host Job Description: Starting Fall 2017

Pitt students learn strong leadership skills via the hosting program that PITT ARTS engages every semester. Through this endeavor, undergraduate students at the University of Pittsburgh are trained to host arts and culture programs for groups of 25-55 of their peers. Hosts are part of the Arts Ambassador program.

The hosting of programs is a sought-after position as it includes free food and free tickets to some of the hottest arts productions in the city.

Hosts manage all aspects of the PITT ARTS program; this consists of signing in students upon arrival; distributing tickets; getting students on the bus; working with personnel at the arts organizations; making sure that students enjoy their meals; and troubleshooting any problems that may arise.

PITT ARTS hosts are paid $50 per program and hosts are expected to have solid leadership potential. Hosts are often asked to represent PITT ARTS at Saturday morning or afternoon Admissions Marketplaces, and are paid $25 to do so and $20 for implementing Artful Wednesdays programs, as needed. PITT ARTS hosts are eligible for Leadership credit through the OCC.

Apply only if you have attended four or more PITT ARTS Arts Encounters, and have a clean record—meaning you have zero no-shows or cancellations.

Please send a brief cover letter as to why you want to be a host and a brief resume to pittarts@pitt.edu or drop off in the PITT ARTS Office in 907 WPU.
