YOUTH Opportunities (age 15-18)

Youth Council (open to youth age 15 – 24)

The AGO Youth Council works collectively to initiate programming by youth for youth, including exhibitions, public art projects, large-scale events, field trips and much more. This is a hands-on, fast-paced program that gives participants a chance to work with local and international artists, advocates and activists on projects that reflect the concerns, interests and passions of people between the ages of 14 to 24. The council accepts new members every fall, and applicants are selected after a group interview involving current members of the AGO Youth Council.
Required Availability: Wednesday evenings, from 5:30pm – 8:30pm. We ask for a one-year commitment (November – November).
Application deadline: of November 11
