Teen Programs

Teen Museum Ambassador Program

Teens from San Francisco Unified High Schools are hired to facilitate classroom visits and gallery activities for families and San Francisco students in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades attending public, private, or parochial schools. Ambassadors receive minimum wage and are paid for their training in addition to their work shifts.

Teens are recruited twice a year:

  1. Academic year (October–April) → Applications are available in September by email.
  2. Summer (June–August) → Applications are available in March by email.
