Teen Producers invites juniors from select Bronx-based high schools to gain technical, curatorial and leadership skills through a two-year apprenticeship at the 92nd Street Y.
Teen Producers participate in weekly internships with 92Y creative directors, producers, graphic artists, web designers, marketers and development officers. The internship enables teens to gain hands-on workforce experience, establish a professional network in the field, and use their individual and collective voice to influence program design.
Participating teens have the opportunity to develop their technique in their chosen art forms through yearlong, subsidized private study with faculty in 92Y’s School of the Arts. 92Y covers all costs associated with private study.
College- and Career-Readiness
Teen Producers work one-on-one with a college advisor during the college identification and application process, helping them through the financial aid process, the Common Application and their personal statements.
Attendance at Cultural Arts Events
Teen Producers attend a range of performances and exhibitions at 92Y and other NYC-based arts organizations. 92Y covers all costs associated with attendance at events, including tickets and transportation.
Culminating Production — Teen Arts Week
In Year Two, as high school seniors, the Teen Producers pool their respective knowledge, strengths and skillsets to produce the annual Teen Arts Week Youth Summit at 92Y.
