During the summer, the Lowline opened applications for its Young Ambassadors Program. It’s a paid 6-month mentorship and job training program for 16 local high school juniors. Here’s a reminder that the deadline for those applications is coming up this week. They’re being accepted through Sept. 16. A synopsis of the program:
Young Ambassadors will gain experience in teaching and communicating science, serving as docents and leading interactive educational sessions focused on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) at the Lowline Lab. Young Ambassadors will benefit from career workshops and networking opportunities with the Lowline’s core team and city-wide collaborators—gaining exposure and experiential learning opportunities in STEAM career pathways. In addition, each Young Ambassador will receive a $1,000 scholarship for their participation in the program.
You can learn more here and also access the online application. The Lowline is, of course, a project to build the world’s first underground park in the old Delancey Street trolley station. The city recently gave the Lowline team permission to move forward with the plan.
