Connecting Youth to Lives in Art

Teen Bridge connects young people from community-based programs to our schoolhouse.

A dedicated group of teens from our partner schools participate outside of school time in a year-round, multi-year program combining art education and experience, mentorship, job training and employment. We encourage the teens to develop their voice and their skills, teach them to work as art teachers’ aides and connect them with Boston-based artists and opportunities. Participants help shape the program.

Teens meet every Saturday during the school year and participate in intensive art experiences during the summer, including summer employment and our annual Artist in Residence program.

Recruitment takes place in the fall, with new teens joining each January and continuing throughout high school.
