Museum Team at Brooklyn Children's Museum

Museum Team at Brooklyn Children's Museum www.brooklynkids.org Founded in 1987, this award winning cultural arts, science, academic and service-based internship serves young people from all over Brooklyn!

Museum Team is a free, year-round afterschool program that serves over 250 youth, grades K–12. It is a multi-tiered program that provides a ladder of learning opportunities at the Museum and in the community. Students begin in Kids Crew with educational programs and workshops in grades K—5, move on to service learning opportunities in grades 6—8, and then have unique teen opportunities in grades 9—12 as a Teen exPLAYner or by participating in Inniss Academy projects.

Mission: The mission of Brooklyn Children’s Museum is to actively engage children in educational and entertaining experiences through innovation and excellence in exhibitions, programs, and use of its collection. The Museum encourages children to develop an understanding of and respect for themselves, others and the world around them by exploring cultures, the arts, science, and the environment.
