This position requires in-person work at 1705 Maple Street in Homestead, PA. MUSA is following CDC and Pennsylvania’s Office of Child Development and Early Learning guidelines in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Employees are required to wear a protective mask at all times while working in the classroom.
MUSA is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and MUSA is committed to creating an inclusive environment for employees of any race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or disability status.

Any person who has been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor involving domestic violence, abuse, neglect of children, theft, assault, or violent crimes will not be considered for employment. Any other criminal history revealed during required background checks will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ‘yellow’ status of Allegheny County, MUSA is unable to successfully operate the Summer Camp program and will not be opening this year. Many of our regular partnerships have been cancelled, which would make it very difficult to provide a high-quality summer program. We have high hopes that we will be able to offer our normal Summer Camp program next year and will miss everyone until then!
We will be operating a Grab and Go food distribution site for local youth, supplying breakfast and lunch at no cost. This will begin on June 29th from 10:00AM-12:00PM at the COG building and the meals are first come, first served.
