Empowering Youth through the Arts
Teen Bridge connects young people from our community-based programs to our schoolhouse and beyond.
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, life skills, mentorship, job training, and employment.
Teens collaborate with each other and teaching artists to develop their artistic, personal and professional voice, and their skills. They learn to work as art teachers’ aides and connect with Boston artists and opportunities. Participants help shape the program.
Teens meet on Saturdays during the school year and participate in intensive art experiences during the summer, including summer employment and our annual Artist in Residence program, receiving stipends and wages.
Recruitment takes place every fall, with new teens joining each January and continuing throughout high school.
To apply or for additional information, please contact Alison Croney Moses.
The Eliot School’s Teen Bridge program is proudly supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, EdVestors, the Joe Kalt & Judy Gans Family Foundation, the Linde Family Foundation, New World Foundation, and the Plymouth Rock Foundation.
