Broward Center for the Performing arts

FORT LAUDERDALE – The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is accepting applications from high school students interested in the arts and journalism for its 2018–2019 Broward Center Teen Ambassador Program. High school students attending public, private or home school in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties are eligible to join the program. 

Since its inception in 2010, the Teen Ambassador Program has given more than 100 students, many of which are repeat ambassadors, the opportunity to attend performances and has provided behind-the-scenes knowledge of the arts at the Broward Center, which is consistently ranked as one of the top 10 venues in the world.

This year’s program will be held from October 10, 2018 through May 31, 2018. Each student will earn community service hours for participating in the program.

Applications are available online and will be accepted through August 24 by 5 p.m. Applicants must be high school students residing in Broward, Palm Beach or Miami-Dade County as of August 2018. If accepted, students must attend and review at least one performance per month, for which tickets will be provided by the Broward Center. Students must attend one meeting per month at the Broward Center, maintain a minimum “B" average and have access to a computer and at least one social media account.

Applications must be signed by a parent or legal guardian and submitted with a copy of the student’s 2017–18 school year report cards. Applicants must also include a letter of recommendation from an educator (such as a teacher, school counselor or principal) who is familiar with the student’s academics and work ethic).

Applicants will be notified of acceptance into the program by September 21 and will be expected to attend two activities each month beginning with the mandatory orientation meeting (presence of a parent or legal guardian is mandatory) on Wednesday, October 10 at 5:30 p.m. at the Broward Center.
