2022 Teen Council Applications

Applications are due Thursday, May 26, 2022

The Cape Ann Museum Teen Council offers paid opportunities for local teens to lead the development of youth initiatives at the Museum. Each year, a new summer cohort of Council Members learn about the behind-the-scenes operations of the Museum, meet key staff and board members, and help design programs and installations to engage their peers at the Museum.

After successfully launching the CAM Teen Council in 2021 with five students, the Cape Ann Museum is proud to expand the program through seven additional paid internship opportunities for high school students this summer. Once accepted, these students will be a part of the CAM Teen Council, a leadership development program for Cape Ann teens, starting in June 2022 and continuing throughout the school year.

The 2021 Teen Council designed the Cape Ann Museum’s first Teen Arts Night, created a temporary mural based on archival materials at the Janet & William Ellery James Center, and coordinated the Rainbow Splash Variety Show. See the full list of events on our website or follow their efforts directly through @CAM_Teens on Instagram.

Teen Council Members are be responsible for:

- Advising CAM on strategies to increase teen engagement
- Developing and implementing programs and events for peers
- Actively maintaining the Teen Council social media accounts
- Assisting CAM staff by working on projects in junction with exhibits

A representative from each of the Cape Ann cities and towns will be selected. The CAM Teen Council is open to anyone age 14 – 19. Applicants from all backgrounds and cultures are encouraged to apply. Applications are due Thursday, May 26, 2022
