Public Art Interns
This is a paid employment program for young people ages 14-25 years old. There are two sessions that run during the course of the year: 1) after-school (October-May) and 2) summer time (July-August). Young people are referred to this program through the Department of Youth Services, Boston Youth Fund, and ABCD. We offer all participants job training, case management, and mentorship, in addition to the hands-on art skills they gain.
