Teen Squad

NOMA seeks creative, enthusiastic, dedicated high school students to join the NOMA Teen Squad! Become a part of the museum team and help shape teen programs at NOMA!

The New Orleans Museum of Art Teen Squad is a creative youth development program that engages high school aged students from around the city. The Teen Squad aims to develop the creative potential of its participants to live richer, fuller lives and develop the critical learning and life skills they need to become active contributors to their communities. Participating teens meet weekly after school to build community by participating in workshops with artists, tours with museum staff, and visits to a variety of cultural institutions in New Orleans. The teens have an opportunity to develop leadership skills by creating content and leading tours of the museum’s collection and temporary exhibitions, along with planning teen-focused events.

The program is open to all high school age youth from a variety of school settings including public, charter, private, homeschool, etc. while earning volunteer service hours.
