Teen Advisory Group
Get Involved!

The Teen Advisory Group is a group of diverse and motivated High School students from around the Kansas City area who are called upon to connect other teens to the museum through marketing and creating events and activities. Even though TAG members are paid a stipend for their participation, the position requires a high degree of commitment and dependability. The application process is competitive as this unique opportunity offers a select group of teens a leadership, cultural, and resume-building experience like no other.
