High School Students

CAREER EXPLORATION
 

Career Exploration Fair
The Frist Center hosts a booth at the Metro Nashville Public Schools Career Fair each year that allows students to sample the many career paths that can be found within a museum such as: education, design, marketing, curatorial, operations, and development. Stop by our booth and visit us!
 

Job Shadow
Job Shadow opportunities are offered at this time only to our partnering schools: Antioch High School, Hillwood High School, Nashville School for the Arts, Hume-Fogg High School, and Big Picture High School, and are based on the availability of staff in the following areas: education, design, marketing, curatorial, operations, and development. The six-hour (one day) shadow experience allows students to experience one-on-one time with a key staff member, an introduction to the many jobs that fit into the larger framework of operating a museum, and a 21st Century Skills-based museum exploration activity.
