C.I.T.Y. Teen Program
(Creative Inspiration Through Youth)
Want to work alongside innovative and passionate museum professionals as you develop programs, interact with visitors, and learn about the operations of a one-of-a-kind arts and technology museum?
The C.I.T.Y. (Creative Inspiration Through Youth) Teen Program is an employment opportunity designed specifically for high school students (ages 14-17**) with opportunities for promotion through their first two years of college. It combines job experience with a mentoring environment, providing useful skills often unseen among students at this age.
C.I.T.Y. Guides are leaders, role models, and the face of the Children’s Creativity Museum. During their time at the Museum, C.I.T.Y. Guides improve their ability to express themselves through art, acquire skills in communication and teamwork, and achieve their goals.
The C.I.T.Y. Teen Program emphasizes leadership development, community service, and mentorship. High school students are selected each year to facilitate the Children’s Creativity Museum experience by assisting visitors of all ages. During the program, C.I.T.Y. Guides receive training to advance their creative and technical skills from beginner to expert level in core areas such as writing and producing news broadcasts, creating clay animation movies, performing in music videos, and composing digital art.
Highly motivated teens with a strong interest in learning about art and technology, working with people of all ages, and becoming community leaders should apply.
