The Teen Program Internships
This media and design based program uses social justice as a catalyst for art making and workforce development. The Teen Program engineers a foundation of learning, builds workforce skills and provides exciting opportunities while fostering engaged citizens. Held in CSTO's safe spaces, our young people develop healthy relationships with their peers and adults while learning the necessary skills to become successful, thriving members of society.
The Teen Program is a paid internship that recruits Boston teens between ages of 14 - 20 while providing training in career focused workshops.
