Teen Ambassadors

Kick-start a career in the arts industry.

This immersive program offers unique exposure to a variety of opportunities that exist beyond the stage.

You’ll get special access to behind-the-scenes production tours, have the chance to shadow professionals in tech, production or administrative roles—and even engage with our wide variety of programming. Plus, you’ll wear quite a few hats representing the Dr. Phillips Center during some of our events, educational programs and community outreach initiatives.

Together, these diverse experiences can open eyes—and doors—to endless possibilities, and prep you for playing a big part in the professional world.
