Cincinnati Museum Center's tuition-free Youth Programs changes lives. Since 1989, it has helped diverse teens, ages 13-18, grow their cultural awareness, develop leadership skills and prepare for higher education and professional careers. Each summer, about 25 new students join Youth Programs, gaining life experiences that position them for success in high school, college and the community. We currently serve over 100 students from 69 different schools. Through mentoring and training, the program’s teens work with museum guests year-round and participate in special summer outings. Youth can join the three-day camp at Hocking Hills State Park, the one-day Diversity Eco-Challenge at Fernbank Park or this year’s Big Summer Trip: four days in New York City to visit colleges and explore the sights.
Help us raise funds and enable more students to gain the leadership and life skills they need to enrich their community and succeed in school.
