The application deadline for the Teen Program has passed. We invite to apply next fall!

The La Brea Tar Pits invites curious and motivated teens to join us for our Teen Program's debut season! As part of the first cohort, ten 13- to 16-year-olds will work behind-the-scenes with expert staff from the La Brea Tar Pits to explore the stories of the Tar Pits, participate in current museum research projects, and create a free "teen-only" event in celebration of the what they discover. With this program, we aim to provide our participants with a positive and supportive network to explore their interests in the natural world, and an experience that stands out on future job and college applications.





Meetings will be held on Tuesdays and Sundays. Tuesday meetings will be from 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm; Sunday meetings will be help in the morning (exact times on Sunday will be subject to change)
