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 2021 Cohort 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. Follow their efforts directly through @CAM_Teens on Instagram.
