Teen Council (TeCo) is a school-year long internship for a select group of high school-aged teens.
TeCo meets weekly throughout the school year, providing opportunities for teens to engage with contemporary art, artists and museum professionals. It provides an excellent introduction to creative careers. The teens in the program work collaboratively to create and promote dynamic programming at the museum for their peers throughout the city.
TeCo interns are selected in the spring for the following school year. Interested students are encouraged to apply throughout the year. All high school students in metro Denver are eligible for an internship. Applicants should be imaginative, responsible and willing to work in a team.
