Youth Council

Youth Council brings youth across Museum programming together to create stronger partnerships between youth and The Field Museum. Youth Council is made up of 12-14 teens from across the Chicago area who meet one Saturday per month from September through May, and plan four curioCITY events. curioCITY is a teen-only evening of career exploration that matches a Field Museum scientist together with a non-scientist.  As part of the Youth Council leadership experience, teen members also explore the museum, go behind-the-scenes and meet Field Museum scientists of their interests!


Applications for 2017-2017 Youth Council are now closed. However, check back for upcoming Youth Council teen events for the 2017-2018 year!
