Project Description

Dallas Museum of Art

The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) is among the 10 largest art museums in the country and is distinguished by its commitment to research, innovation and public engagement. At the heart of the Museum and its programs is its global collection, which encompasses more than 24,000 works and spans 5,000 years of history, representing a full range of world cultures.

Teen Ambassador Program

The Teen Ambassador Program provides opportunities for high school students to initiate and deepen their relationship with the DMA. Teen Ambassadors lead summer family programs and gallery activities for young visitors (ages 5–12). Family programs range from drop-in art-making activities in the Center for Creative Connections to Family Storytime in the galleries.

We seek teens who are comfortable talking about works of art and engaging with young children. You must be at least 14 years old and have completed the 8th grade or equivalent to be eligible for this opportunity. Volunteers accepted into the program must commit to volunteering 20 hours over the course of the summer.

Applications for the Teen Ambassador Program open in March, and are due at the end of April. If you have any questions regarding the Teen Ambassador Program, email


Teen Advisory Council

The Teen Advisory Council, or TAC for short, is a group of highly motivated high school students who help shape the direction of how the Museum engages with youth audiences. Members of the council develop innovative interdisciplinary programming for Museum visitors of all ages, and serve as ambassadors for the Museum to the community. Being a TAC member is an opportunity to develop leadership, project management, and hands-on facilitation skills, as well as work directly with museum professionals. Teen Advisory Council members commit to attending two Thursday evening planning meetings a month and volunteering at hosted events at least once a month from September through July.

Applications for the Teen Advisory Council open in July and are due mid-August. If you have any questions regarding the Teen Advisory Council, email
