Teen Ambassador Program

Virtual Teen Ambassador at Zeiterion

The Z’s Teen Ambassador Program offers the space and guidance for teens to learn through exposure, collaboration, creativity and engagement in the arts. Participants ages 13 to 18 will experience unique creative opportunities as well as career readiness training for pursuing the arts or an arts-related field.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, The Z has reimagined the program for 2021. It’s still free!

Teen Ambassadors will come together virtually for 12 weeks to watch, discuss, and analyze performing arts live streams, documentaries, recorded concerts, and artist talk backs to appreciate the importance of the arts to American culture and economy.
