About



Circle of Friends fosters health by staffing classes with university interns and community volunteers, and offering the classes free of charge to persons living with a mental illness, addiction, and/or struggling with homelessness. Artistic expression is a proven way to aid people in their recovery and self-healing.

We are looking for art, creative writing, music and drama teachers.

As a facilitator, you will utilize your experience, talent and care to:

- Create lesson plans for small groups of individuals using accessible materials to offer a range of art mediums throughout the course of the class.

The facilitator will hold a weekly lesson(we hope for a minimum of 6-months) that is suitable for a variety of interests and abilities among the population we serve. Our organization also works hard to create opportunities for showcasing/selling students' art in galleries as well as hosting drama performance shows.

Our office is located in Seattle's University District, and our classes take place at various locations in King County. We currently need teachers in Capitol Hill, Redmond, Bellevue, and Downtown & South Seattle.
