Join the movement and build lasting leadership skills with Museum professionals

As part of our Youth Development Program, students engage with the science museum industry to build critical personal and professional skills that will support their post-high school aspirations. Participants will be in the action in early childhood programs, informal science education, the non-profit space and much more. The program provides four main benefits:

  • Opportunities to be immersed in STEM and develop skills through STEM-based experiential learning experiences.
  • College and career readiness.
  • Development of a strong social capital network.
  • Cultivation of long-term relationships between a diverse group of students and industry professionals.
