Brooklyn Children's Museum - Teen Crew After School Program

Expansion of an apprenticeship and college preparatory program, Teen Crew, for 60 teens over the summer and 80 teens during the academic year.

The Brooklyn Children’s Museum (BCM) seeks $100,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to help establish a term endowment to support BCM’s Teen Crew. BCM will leverage over 30 years of experience providing humanities-based career, technical, and college readiness resources to teens in Crown Heights, Brownsville, and Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhoods of Brooklyn in making the program a success. Teen Crew offers a wide variety of humanities-based educational and professional career building opportunities for young adults. In grades 9 and 10 of the program, teens apprentice with departments at the Museum including early childhood education, science, animal care, arts and culture, after school, and select administrative departments; in grades 11 and 12, eligible participants are offered a paid internship with one of those departments. This program is an opportunity to develop the next generation of museum professionals.
