Join the SANCA Board (volunteer)

The SANCA Board of Directors is actively seeking passionate, diverse, and experienced board members to help guide our nonprofit organization as it transforms itself to become more inclusive and meet the challenges of COVID. SANCA board members have the privilege of working collaboratively to direct and support a circus school for children of all ages. We have seen first-hand the power of circus to transform lives. SANCA shows people that through hard work they can accomplish what they never thought possible.

Marketing/Communication Volunteer (volunteer)

Description: SANCA is seeking an experienced Marketing and Communication volunteer to assist with social media management and light graphic design tasks. Responsibilities include content writing, newsletter creation, social media posting, and additional tasks as needed. Approximately 10 hours per week (negotiable).

Administrative Assistant

Description: The Administrative Assistant (AA) is a member of the Office Staff and responsible for providing administrative and office support to the Office Manager. The AA position is currently part-time and hours will fluctuate depending on specific events occurring within the organization.  Hours currently estimated at 15-20 hours per week.

Circus Camp Coach

Description: SANCA’s Camp Program provides a fun, engaging, and safe experience for children between ages 6 and 17, with camps grouped by age into 6-9 years old and 10-17 years old. Coaches will instruct campers in trampoline, tumbling, aerial rope and silk, static trapeze, partner acro, juggling, and other circus skills. Coaches will help to create an exciting and fun experience that includes teamwork, a positive atmosphere, and the joy of circus, helping campers through the challenge of learning new things by breaking difficult or complex skills down into steps, and helping their students feel successful, whatever their rate of progression.  Camp coaches are part-time, with hours ranging from 18 to 33 hours per week.

Flying Trapeze Coach

Description: A flying trapeze coach is responsible for teaching recreational flying trapeze as part of a three coach team to students age 4 and up. Currently, these classes are session based, but may revert to single serving classes as COVID restrictions ease. Regardless, coaches must be able to quickly engage with each student, evaluate his or her individual level, and set out a personalized plan to help progress toward his or her goals.
