Museum Ambassadors

In this twelve-year-old, multi-visit program, high school juniors and seniors and their teachers gain experience in all aspects of museum life at the Cleveland Museum of Art and other University Circle institutions. Guided by museum staff and volunteers, museum ambassadors come to the museum for a full day once a month to participate in presentations, projects, and discussions relating to different departments in the museum. The program culminates at the Cleveland Museum of Art in the spring with a Family and Community Day.  Students share their newfound knowledge and experience with family, friends, and the general public through projects they conceive and execute with their school group.

The program currently serves 80 students and teachers from Bedford, Hawken, John Hay, Lincoln-West, Shaker, Shaw, Strongsville, and Westlake high schools and the Cleveland School of the Arts.
