“Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.” — James Michener
James Michener’s life is a model of community service, and his legacy lives on in all of the teen service opportunities available at the Michener Art Museum. Volunteering at the Michener is an excellent way for middle and high school students to volunteer in a meaningful way, helping artists of all ages achieve their dreams. Teen volunteers also learn about art, art education, and museum life, while adding valuable community service experience to National Junior Honor Society, National Honor Society, Key Club, and college applications.
Teen Service Opportunities at the Michener keep art at the heart of education.
Counselors in Training work with Michener summer camp staff, at Education Gallery receptions, and youth and family workshops throughout the school year. They gain unique experience working with children ages 3-18 in an arts classroom setting.
In the Student Curator class serious students of art and history age 13 through 18 will work with Michener curatorial and education staff to create our first-ever fully student-curated exhibition.
