Young & Powerful: Stories, Reflections, and Experiences of Apprentices Past and Present

San Francisco Room
Exhibition Dates: May 17 – June 10, 2019

An apprentice-designed exhibition

In celebration of the program’s approaching 10th anniversary, apprentices reflected on the program’s previous nine years and documented stories and experiences of apprentices past and present. Young & Powerful was an audio-based exhibition which offered a glimpse into the history and impact of the program as well as the personalities and identities of the apprentices themselves.

A 2017 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award winner and a recipient of the 2018 Excellence in Programming award from the Education Professional Network (EdCom) of the American Alliance of Museums, the New Bedford Whaling Museum’s High School Apprenticeship Program is continuously evolving and growing.
