“I’m Wattina, but people call me Tina and I’m 18. I’ve been coming here for 6 or 7 times I think. I help out with different things and I help clean everywhere, but I mainly help out with the vegetables and fruits and stuff. I clean them off for the kids, and I wipe down the tables. Sometimes I help out in the art section and see if the markers are dry and throw them out, but mainly I do the vegetables. It’s my favorite project.”
The Muse Ambassador Program provides real world experiences for special needs high school students to learn and further develop important life skills such as social skills and workforce training skills. Students gain confidence, experience, and friends through the program – and they get to have fun in the museum, as well!
