2020 DMA Teen Ambassador Application
The Dallas Museum of Art’s Teen Ambassador Program application now open for summer 2020, and we want to hear from you! This volunteer program is a great way to get involved and go behind the scenes at your local art museum.
Teen Ambassadors are trained to give tours, host story time for families, and lead art activities in our galleries. They are closely mentored by museum staff members, and have several opportunities during the summer to work on special projects that impact the Museum! They also get perks with volunteering, like free parking in our garage, admission to special exhibitions, and exclusive workshops and tours.
Who can apply to the Teen Ambassador Program?
To apply for the Teen Ambassador Program, you must:
• Be at least 14 years old and have completed the 8th grade or equivalent.
• Have a background and/or interest in visual arts, art making, and museums.
• Be comfortable with engaging visitors of all ages and backgrounds, especially young children
• Be able to commit to at least 20 hours over the course of the summer, up to a maximum of 40 hours.
• Have reliable transportation to and from the Dallas Museum of Art.
• Preference will be given to students living in Dallas attending DISD schools.
When completing your application, please be honest and answer questions in your own voice! It helps us get a better understanding of who you are and why you're interested in being a part of the program.
Please keep in mind that most shifts will be available Monday through Friday between 10:00am and 3:00pm. There are limited opportunities to volunteer during the evening or on weekends. Before applying, think about how being a Teen Ambassador would fit into your other summer commitments (summer school, jobs, vacations, etc.).
