Teen Programs

I learned that I have to make my own milestones in life so there is a legacy that I leave behind.
–Yu, age 19, YouthCAN participant

The Wing offers free after-school and summer programs for teens. YouthCAN (grades 9-12) and Teensway (grades 6-8) provide youth with hands-on opportunities to express themselves creatively and develop leadership and communication skills, while learning about their cultural heritage. Teens work with an artist mentor and Museum staff to develop and produce their own exhibitions in the Frank Fujii Youth Space gallery at The Wing.

YouthCAN

High school students meet twice a week during the school year and four days a week in the summer to work with teaching artists on projects that explore their heritage and identities as Asian Pacific American youth. Students produce two exhibitions per year in the Frank Fujii Youth Space gallery, along with other shows in venues outside the Museum. All levels of artistic experience are welcome.

In 2010, YouthCAN received the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award.


YouthCAN accepts National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award from First Lady Michelle Obama.
