Teen InternsShare

In this year long program, students in grades 9–12 work with museum educators to facilitate family programs and special projects while exploring art and culture through the Museum’s collections. Interns engage families with hands-on art activities, prepare materials for upcoming programs or read stories in the Museum’s galleries.

Training Sessions
All Teen Interns will attend mandatory training sessions throughout the academic year which will familiarize them with the Museum’s special and permanent exhibitions. Interns will also learn about museum education, working with children, acquiring leadership skills, and engaging with works of art. Applicants must commit to four orientation trainings in the spring of 2014.

Community Service Hours
After completing a year of training sessions and volunteering, Teen Interns will receive community service hours for school.

To Apply
All applicants must submit an application form and one letter of recommendation from a teacher, coach, guidance counselor, supervisor or camp counselor. All materials must be submitted by the deadline: March 19, 2014.
