Teen Museum Corps - Summer 2022

Apply here for summer 2022.

This summer, the Ute Indian Museum is looking for high school students to assist the museum in educational programs, customer service, social media marketing, historic re-enactment, and other museum-related programs.  

Each member of Museum Corps must be able to commit to an average of 6 hours a week for the summer – starting the week of June 13 through August 5. (Of course, we can work around family vacations and other obligations.) Teens who fulfill this obligation will earn a cash education award at the end of the summer. Participants will also earn a free t-shirt, lots of great real-world experience, and over 50 hours for school-related community service credit.

Once you complete the form, click the continue button at the bottom.

*The deadline to apply is May 25, 2022.

All qualified applicants will be invited to attend a group & individual interview. Participants who are selected for the Teen Museum Corps will be required to attend an orientation on June 10th from 11 - 2 PM.
