The USC PAM Teen Ambassadors program brings enthusiastic, creative, and culturally-minded high school students together to learn about Asian art, museum careers, and public program planning. Through bi-monthly after school meetings, students work with education staff to plan and execute special, teen-only events and social media content filled with activities of their choosing. This is a volunteer position with opportunities to participate in and engage with the museum’s many education and public programs. Meetings and events are a hybrid of virtual and in-person. The program will run from October through the end of April.

Applications for the 2023-24 cohort are now closed. Check back for the 2024-25 application in August 2024.

As part of their projects for Mental Health Month and AAPI Heritage Month, the 2021 cohort of USC PAM Teen Ambassadors have created a cookbook of their favorite comfort foods. Check it out below!
