This year, the HRM is proud to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Junior Docent Program, an award-winning teen leadership program, and to applaud the exceptional Yonkers high school students who are an integral part of the Museum.
As Manager, Youth and Family Programs, Garcia Choy will be responsible for the award-winning Junior Docents, a teen leadership program at the HRM, and all family programs, designing and facilitating programming for access and outreach to build community engagement and provide a welcoming, comfortable, and inclusive environment for visitors of all ages.
Natalia Villota Montoya is one of twelve HRM Junior Docents who recently participated in a photography workshop organized with the Cooperstown Graduate Program and the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum in Inwood. Selections of their work are featured in Food for Thought: Teen Perspectives on Scarcity and Abundance, on view at the Museum through September 15. Read about Natalia’s experience with the workshop.
