Community Arts Internship Program
Southern Exposure is now accepting youth applications for the new Community Arts Internship Program. This highly collaborative program will give youth the opportunity to work with professional artists on a community-based art project.

SoEx is looking for excited, creative and committed youth to produce and exhibit their project. Qualifying youth will receive a stipend for their work as part of the program.

ACE Mentor Program - Architecture, Engineering, Construction, & Design
For ACE students, the construction industry is your classroom.
The ACE Mentor Program is open to any high school student who has the curiosity and drive to learn about a career in design and construction — from contracting and engineering to architecture and landscaping.
Already, thousands of students have enjoyed the exciting projects, informative field trips and other engaging activities that make up the ACE experience.
Led by mentors. Driven by you.
As a participant, you’ll join a team of other students led by adult mentors who are practicing industry professionals. ACE isn’t about merely describing specific professions, it’s about immersing you in the profession by engaging you in actual building projects. These can range from new schools and mixed-use developments to amphitheatres and temporary housing for movie stars on location.
What to expect.
You’ll visit professional offices, job sites and other relevant locations. You’ll discuss the same issues, and perform the same tasks, as if you worked in the industry. ACE gives you a practical hands-on view of how abstract concepts get transformed into the buildings that make up our everyday reality.
ACE is your chance to learn about different construction industry careers — and discover which one might be right for you. It's also a great way to connect with other students who share your passions. The friends you make during your ACE experience will likely be your friends for life.
The Bronfman Youth Fellowships
The Bronfman Youth Fellowships (BYFI) is a vibrant network of 1,000 young Jews from Israel and North America that includes some of today’s most inspiring Jewish writers, thinkers and leaders. The Fellowships tap future influencers at a formative point in their lives and immerse them in an intensive exploration of Jewish text study, pluralism and social responsibility.
Founded in 1987 by Edgar M. Bronfman, BYFI is today the flagship program for outstanding young Jews in North America and Israel. The Fellowships reflect Mr. Bronfman’s early and impassioned belief that for the Jewish people to thrive, Israeli and American Jews must be engaged in open and creative discourse with one another. The alumni embody Mr. Bronfman’s vision that young people who are enriched and energized by their Judaism are poised to contribute not only to Jewish life, but to improving the world.
Through a highly selective process, BYFI recruits high school juniors to participate in transformational educational experiences in Israel and North America. BYFI Fellows become part of this vibrant, life-long alumni community that inspires and supports each other.
