Teen Council

Do you want to make a difference? WAM is looking for teenagers who share a passion for the arts and a dedication toward community building! The Teen Council is responsible for planning and organizing teen programming such as (but not limited to): Teen Docent Programs, Teen Nights, Teen Arts Exhibitions, and Teen Galas. Members are expected to attend a monthly council meeting (in-person or remotely), serve a term of at least one academic year (September to August), and be involved in at least one teen program.

Applications for the 2022-2023 academic year open mid-August 2022. Apply here.

Teen Apprentice Program

The Worcester Art Museum’s Teen Apprentice Program is a paid internship program with flexible hours designed for teenagers 16+ years old who have an interest in working in the arts, museums, or education. Apprentices will participate in a wide range of experiences designed to help with career readiness. From the application and interview process to working with the public, from assisting with studio classes to designing and presenting a research project, each part of the Apprentice Program will be valuable to both the apprentice and the Museum.

We usually look to hire a Fall Intern, a Winter/Spring Intern, and two Summer Interns. Check the WAM Job Opportunities page to see if we are currently hiring.
