In the Jewish Museum's Teen Intern program, students entering grades 9 through 12 gain work experience by assisting professional educators in the Museum’s art studio and galleries, while exploring art and Jewish culture and developing their own creative interests. Accepted students can fulfill community service hours or internship requirements for their schools. Space is limited (program is competitive) and students must commit to all training sessions. This year's Teen Internship program is currently on haitus due to COVID-19.For more information, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
In this free after-school program, students in grades 9–12 work with a teaching artist to learn the basics of video production, including storyboarding, cinematography, and editing. Using the Museum’s exhibitions as inspiration, students work in small groups to create their own films. No prior experience necessary—beginners are welcome!
Space is limited and students must commit to monthly training sessions. For more information, please e-mail email@example.com.

Objects tell stories. Museums, like the Jewish Museum, are full of objects and works of art that reflect and explore history, culture, and ideas. Our lives, too, are full of objects that are meaningful to us in myriad ways.
Inspired by the stories told through objects and works of art in the exhibitions Afterlives: Recovering the Lost Stories of Looted Art and The Hare with Amber Eyes, the Jewish Museum invites middle and high school students to submit photographs that feature a meaningful object from their own lives, one that depicts a personal, cultural, or historical connection.
What story can an object tell about you, your community, or your family? How might we connect to parts of our own culture and identity through objects? How can these ideas be represented in photographs?
To participate, students must submit an original photograph of an object that conveys a story. The subject of the photograph should be the object, though we encourage you to consider the world that the object inhabits—the people, the environment—when composing your image.
All images and content must be the student’s own original work and free from copyright restrictions. Winning photographs will be featured on the Jewish Museum's website and social media platforms. Winners will also receive a gift certificate to a photography retail store. Please use this form to submit your photograph by February 18, 2022.
