How could my teen get involved with Mint?

Start by showing up at our pop ups and art fairs to get a first hand view of who we are and what we do. Introduce yourself to our staff and volunteers, or become a volunteer yourself. Check out our events page to find out where we’ll be next.

Then review our social media so you see who and what kinds of art are being created and sold.

We are a competitive program so teens must apply to be part of our fall and spring learn and earn program. Applications are accepted in August and September and again in December and January.  Teens submit samples of their creative work and explain why they will be an asset to Mint  – and why they long to join Mint.

For our summer jobs, please apply through Grow Detroit’s Young Talent which generally has a March deadline – and drop our executive director a note if you really want to join us.
