Teens Make History is an award-winning, work-based learning program that encourages local teens to develop key professional skills, build self-confidence, and explore the complexities of history.
As paid part-time employees of the Missouri History Museum, teen apprentices work closely with staff members on projects like museum theater plays, exhibit components, oral history interviews, and education programs.
Teens interested in joining the program must first complete the Teens Make History Academy, an eight-week museum studies workshop held annually between January and March.
National Arts & Humanities Youth Program Awards is an initiative of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (PCAH). The President’s Committee partners with the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to administer the program.
