Teen Advisory Board 2021–22

Paid Internship for High School Students

The Noguchi Museum’s Teen Advisory Board [TAB] is a paid internship for high school students. Each year, TAB interns plan projects that promote dialogue and inclusivity at the Museum.

This year, TAB interns will focus their conversations around anti-racism, and the establishment of art museums; considering the alternative path Isamu Noguchi took in creating The Noguchi Museum. After learning about museum structures and the social role of art, TAB interns will collaborate on a final project together.

TAB interns are paid a $750 stipend for the school year, receiving $375 at both the midpoint and end of the program. The Teen Advisory Board is open to 11th–12th graders attending New York City high schools. TAB meets every Wednesday from 4:30–6:30 pm, from November 10, 2021 through May 4, 2022. Meetings will take place at The Noguchi Museum.

All students must show proof that they have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, along with an ID with information matching the proof of vaccination. Staff members are also required to be vaccinated. As well, all participants are required to wear a mask during the program and social distancing will be reinforced.
