Job Details


Since the All Stars Project launched the award-winning Operation Conversation: Cops & Kids in 2006, it has emerged as one of the country’s leading police-community relations programs – and the only program that focuses at a national level on culture-change and that uses a performance approach to build trust and new relationships between young people and police officers. 

As interest in Operation Conversation: Cops & Kids continues to grow in New York, Newark and nationally, so has the need to expand the group of Cops & Kids workshop facilitators, which is why we are reaching out to All Stars friends and supporters like you.

We hope you will consider applying to be trained as a Cops & Kids workshop facilitator and are interested in learning an innovative new approach to transforming the relationship of police officers and young people from our inner-city communities.

If accepted into the program, you’ll take part in a highly interactive training environment where participants develop a solid foundation in the All Stars’ innovative performance-based approach and learn the practical skills needed to effectively lead Cops & Kids workshops. The training program is rigorous, hands-on and consists of role-playing, lectures, group discussion and community immersion. 


Candidates who are accepted will participate in a 6-month training program currently planned from July through December 2019.

Completed applications are due by June 18, 2019. 

Qualifications and Requirements:

• Five years+ of experience in the field of performing arts/theatre, including experience with theatre directing and acting

• Experience communicating and interacting with culturally/socially diverse populations in a variety of settings

• Proven success in leading and directing large groups or casts

• Strong leadership and interpersonal skills, and the ability to interact and communicate professionally

• A strong desire to be trained in a new cutting-edge, performance-based approach

• Experience working with inner-city teenagers preferred

• Residence in the tri-state area, proficiency in English, and permanent work authorization in the United States

To apply, submit a resume and a letter of interest to Stephanie Cathey, Youth Programs Manager, via email at scathey@allstars.org.
