Teen Council 2023–24

Join the Museum of the Moving Image Teen Council! In this paid internship, collaborate with other NYC teens to help shape the Museum's growing program offerings for young adults, including taking a leadership role with the annual Teen Film Festival, hosted at the Museum. You'll learn more about working in an arts and cultural organization, meet museum professionals, and gain real-world experience in the hybrid craft of organizing and project management, all while exploring the history and technology of the moving image.

Teen Council is a job development program and provides a stipend upon completion.
