Opportunities for youth at BARN

We hope youth and families find many opportunities to become active at BARN.  The classes and programs listed in the Youth Calendar are either specifically designed for youth or have been “tagged” by studios because the event topic might be of interest to youth.  All classes at BARN are open to 14 and above, unless noted otherwise.

More ways to get involved:

In addition, we are developing other opportunities for youth to share their knowledge and enthusiasm, engage our artisan studios and learn from BARN Artisans.

Internships: BARN is fueled by volunteers. Join the BARN team as a volunteer, and as a high school student, you could apply for an unpaid Work Experience Credit.

Youth Council: High school and middle school students can help guide and direct BARN’s youth offerings.

Community Service: Get involved in any of the community service projects at BARN.

Independent Studies/Mentorships: If you are interested in Independent Studies through your local high school, contact your school counselor.

Partnerships: We would love to chat with representatives of schools, youth and community groups on how to connect our programs with yours.
