We take the safety and well-being of our students seriously and we are looking for chaperones who can be responsible for the students when they are not in class, ensuring they are safe traveling around the streets of New York City as they go from location to location, and also being the support system the students might need while they are away from home.

Chaperones are responsible to arrange for their own travel.  They will be provided a shared room (with another chaperone) in the hotel.  Parents of children attending the institute will NOT be eligible to be a chaperone.  A chaperone is a non-paid position, but you WILL receive a ticket to all of the Broadway shows and breakfast and dinner (with the students).


If you're interested in applying to be an chaperone for The Open Jar Institute, download and fill out the Chaperone Application. Additional application submission instructions are on the application. Applications are due by March 15, 2019. Send completed applications to the email address below.
