Teens

The Jewish Museum offers unique opportunities for teens to engage with the arts. Learn more about and register for after-school and summer classes, the Teen Intern Program, and photography contests here.

Teen Intern Program

The year-long Teen Intern Program offers students entering grades 9 through 12 the opportunity to gain work experience by assisting professional educators in the Museum’s art studio and galleries, while simultaneously exploring art and Jewish culture and developing their own creative interests. Students accepted into the program can fulfill community service hours or internship requirements at their school.

For more information about the program, please call 212.423.3254 or e-mail teenprograms@thejm.org.

High School Video Workshop

In this free after-school program, students entering grades 9 – 12 work with a teaching artist to learn the basics of video production, including storyboarding, cinematography, and editing. Using the Museum’s exhibitions as inspiration, students work in small groups to create their own films. No prior experience necessary – beginners are welcome!

Teens participate in the High School Video Workshop.
