Youth Teaching Assistants (YTA)

After much consideration, Smithsonian leadership decided that as the COVID-19 crisis continues to progress it would be difficult to offer a safe camp experience for all participants and all on-site 2020 summer camps have been cancelled. While we are excited to announce that we are currently working on creating Smithsonian-centric offerings online for K-11th Graders, we are saddened to announce we will be suspending the Youth Teaching Assistant program for the summer of 2020. We look forward to receiving your updated applications in the spring of 2021!
