The High Museum of Art’s Teen Team is a dynamic group of high school students who help create and host public programs at the High, including Teen Night, Art Talks Back, Teen FriHIGHday, and Second Sundays. The Teen Team program is a paid, year-round commitment. Participants will explore the Museum’s collection and special exhibitions, meet museum staff, local artists, and get the inside scoop on museum careers.
Who can apply? Rising high school juniors and seniors enrolled for the upcoming school year are eligible to apply.
What are the requirements? Teen Team members don’t have to be great artists, but they do have to have an interest in learning about art. They should also enjoy being with people—especially children.
What is the schedule? The Teen Team is a year-round program, which includes an eight-week summer intensive, meetings and hosting Teen FriHIGHday once a month, and working at Second Sunday family events once a month. The summer intensive runs June 4 through July 27. Teen Team members are at the Museum from 10 a.m. through 3 p.m. on Tuesday through Friday of each week during the summer intensive. For the remainder of the year (August through May), the Teen Team meets and hosts Teen FriHIGHday on the second Friday Friday of each month from 4 to 9 p.m. and assists monthly with Second Sunday family programs.
**Only three absences are permitted during the program—please make sure that you are able to commit for the entire year before applying.
How can I apply? Applications for the 2019-2020 Teen Team open on January 12 and close at midnight on March 2.
