Youth Programs

At the Discovery Center we believe youth play an active role in solving today and tomorrow’s toughest challenges—and we’re excited to share resources and present programs that highlight how youth are shaping their local and global communities, now and in the future. Our youth programs include a spring Teen Action Fair, Take Action Summer Workshops, and our Youth Ambassador Program.


Join the Youth Ambassador Program (YAP)

This year-long hybrid program for high school-aged youth who care deeply about fostering inclusion and belonging, raising awareness about local and global issues, and creating youth-focused programs and exhibits that inspire positive social change. Youth Ambassadors spearhead community outreach efforts, network with local change-makers, organize the Teen Action Fair, co-facilitate the Youth Summer Workshops, and develop leadership, empathy, and collaboration skills along the way.
