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 Teen 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.
The 2023 CAM Teen Cohort worked on an online exhibit called GDT Through a New Lens to accompany the special exhibition,Above the Fold: The Photographers of the “Gloucester Daily Times,” 1973-2005. Their online exhibit showcases selected photographs from the Gloucester Daily Times through the eyes of the Council. See the exhibit here.
