Program Coordinator / Lifetime Arts

  • New Rochelle, New York
  • TypePaid
  • TermFull time
  • CategoryPrograms
  • Post DateMar 05, 2018

Founded in 2008, Lifetime Arts is a nonprofit arts service organization that offers a positive, modern, artistic and social lens through which to serve, inspire and engage America’s growing population of older adults.


Our mission is to encourage creative aging by promoting the inclusion of professional arts programs in organizations that serve older adults; to prepare artists to develop the creative capacity of older adult learners; and to foster lifelong learning in and through the arts by increasing opportunities for participation in community based programming.

Our approach releases provider and participant from outdated stereotypes that define older people as needy, incapable or frail. While we partner with and advocate for creative aging initiatives that serve all people within this range, we focus on serving independent adults interested in exploring creative expression in a social group setting.

  • Capacity Building Initiatives — Lifetime Art’s signature project that brings instructional arts programs for older adults to organizations across the country, through professional development, technical assistance and demonstration projects.
  • Creative Aging Roster — A national on-line listing of teaching artists who are qualified to teach older adults in community settings. Teaching artists listed on the Roster have their credentials reviewed by a panel of cross-sector experts.
  • Professional Development and Training — a wide range of training programs and services for teaching artists, cultural, arts and community organizations. These include online and live trainings and related resource materials.

  • Reviewing program plans, including curricula and budgets, and providing feedback to organizations and teaching artists;
  • Creating and maintaining all project records, schedules and directories;
