New Student Arts and Civic Engagement Opportunities in Boston

Students seeking for-credit opportunities that involve meaningful citizenship, community service and service-learning, should check out the new Institute for Art and Civic Engagement at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Located in SFMA’s Artist’s Resource Center and founded in partnership with Tufts University College of Citizenship and Public Service, the Institute fosters development of partnerships with art, culture, research, education, healthcare, social service, business and entrepreneurial ventures. There are community-based learning projects in teaching/mentoring young people, arts and medicine, public art, international projects and internships embracing role of art in public life. Opportunities include participation in the award-winning Youth Art-in-Action program and a chance to work at Boston Arts Academy, an innovative school within the Boston Public School system.
