Youth Insights (YI) currently offers two free, semester-long after-school programs each spring and fall for 9th through 12th grade New York City high school students:
The Youth Insights Artists program brings teens together with contemporary artists, providing opportunities to work collaboratively, discuss art critically, think creatively, and make art inspired by this exchange.
In the Youth Insights Writers program, teens work closely with contemporary artists to explore art and the connections between art and text through critical and creative writing.
Graduates of the Youth Insights Artists and Writers programs are eligible to participate in YI Leaders, a yearlong, paid after-school internship.
Youth Insights Leaders is an opportunity to gain experience working in a museum education department and to serve as an ambassador to your community. Applicants should be prepared to work 3–10 hours per week.
