Youth Enrichment Programs

YES2 Play Explorer

Program provides hands-on facilitation of museum exhibits and interpretation of gallery content. Learn exhibit content, how to effectively interact with visitors, model appropriate play and actively engage visitors.

Event Creation

YES2 participants take an active part in the creation of new events and workshops, immersing them in workplace readiness and leadership opportunities. YES2 participants head up task forces that shape the events that will be attended by other participants and the general public. In 2014, YES2 participants hosted their first-ever Comedy Night, held their second annual Comic Book Celebration and Holiday Craft Fair events and hosted their first-ever Film Festival in 2015.
See the YES2 Public Events.

Art and Culture Exchanges

Share your experiences as an American teen with students in other countries with several after-school programs. ArtLink, a collaboration with Creative Connections, partners the YES2 program with art classes from around the globe (past partners include The Gambia, Cambodia, Guatemala, Jordan and Brazil) to learn about world culture and share artwork. More opportunities are arriving in 2016!
