FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Do you know a high school student who is interested in the arts and journalism and is active on social media?

The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is now accepting applications for its 2019-2020 Broward Center Teen Ambassador Program.

High school students attending public, private or home school in Broward, MiamiDade and Palm Beach counties are eligible to join the program.

Teen Ambassadors are provided with behind-the-scenes experiences and exclusive educational opportunities, including introductions to performances in every artistic discipline.

Acting as in-house theatre critics, these students must demonstrate a dedication to both the performing arts and writing.

Teen Ambassadors are responsible for sharing with the community their experiences at the Broward Center and affiliated venues by posting their experiences to the teen ambassador website and their personal social media outlets.

Detailing their experiences through written reviews, these students offer a teenage perspective as they gain exposure to a variety of performance styles.

All applications must be completed online by Friday, Aug. 23 at 5 p.m. Mailed or in-person applications will not be accepted. Applications submitted by a parent or guardian on behalf of the applicant will not be considered.

Each student will earn community service hours for participating in the program.

Applicants will be notified of acceptance into the program by Friday, Sept. 20 and will be expected to attend two activities each month beginning with the mandatory orientation meeting on Monday, Oct. 7 at 5:30 p.m. at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, 201 SW Fifth Ave. in Fort Lauderdale.
