Special Consideration during the Covid-19 Pandemic

Outreach Services delivery is dramatically different than it has historically been. Since March 2020, we have been serving our students entirely virtually.

Our expectation is that the new Manager can interact competently with online systems, is confident with online and phone communication, and can pivot to working with students, staff, and the community face to face as we navigate this difficult time.

Employment Statement

Hilltop Artists believes that promoting diversity is vital to our mission of “using glass art to connect young people from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds to better futures.”

We work daily through our mission to center engagement and partnership with underrepresented and marginalized people and groups, and to bring diversity into all facets of our organization – staff and board, students and families, volunteers and community partners.

We define diversity broadly to include and extend beyond notions of race, national origin, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, and creative expression.

Hilltop Artists is an equal opportunity employer. It is our strong belief that equal opportunity for all employees is central to the continuing success of our organization.

We will not discriminate against any employee, student, their family (or support system), volunteer, or applicant on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, veteran status, marital status, gender identification, citizenship, the presence of any sensory, mental, or physical disability, or any other status protected by local, state, or federal law.

In hiring, contracting, and in partnering with volunteers, we seek individuals who share and uplift our values and will contribute to our dedication to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Applications by members of all underrepresented groups are encouraged.

Hilltop Artists is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to individuals with disabilities. If you need an accommodation due to a disability to apply for a position call us at 253-571-7670 or send us an email at
