Teen Ambassadors

Kick-start a career in the arts.

Through this immersive program, passionate students across Central Florida become lifelong lovers of the arts. They’re exposed to the diversity of what’s offered at the arts center. They engage with our wide inventory of productions. And they dive headfirst into exploring exciting careers that exist beyond the stage, opening eyes—and doors—to endless possibilities.

As the face of Dr. Phillips Center, Teen Ambassadors also wear quite a few hats: social media ambassador, street team member and event volunteer. They may even participate in master classes or workshops, or get the chance to go behind the scenes. And every one of these unique experiences will help them learn the importance of supporting the arts—and prepare them for playing a big part in the professional world.
