420x280_Medium_ACES2.pngCalling All High School Students!

Selected applicants can become student workers at the Please Touch Museum in our Achievement through Community Service, Education and Skill-Building Program, or ACES.

Participating teens are paired with museum staff to gain valuable “real-world” work experience in departments throughout the museum. They also serve as “Play Ambassadors” during our two school-readiness events, Passport to Kindergarten and the Kindergarten Mixer. Students also engage in community service projects, as well as cultural and arts enrichment programs.

Taken together, the teens’ experiences help prepare them for college and adulthood, and to become responsible parents.

Business donations to this program qualify for Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit.

More information is available by calling (215) 578-5167.
