Summer Junior Teen Program

Applications for the 2017 Program are now closed, and we do not accept any late submissions. Applications for the 2018 Summer Junior Teen Program will open in January 2018.

The summer junior teen program is an exciting, hands-on experience for students in 6th or 7th grade interested in STEAM and working with children of all ages. McWane’s Junior Teen Program prepares students to be future Teen Volunteers and Teen Leaders. In addition to inspiring a lifelong love of learning and positively impacting the lives of our youth, Summer Teen Volunteers gain invaluable experience in public speaking, work ethic, and leadership.
