Young Guides

The Museo de Arte de Ponce’s Young Guides program is unique in Puerto Rico. It provides training for students interested in presenting the museum’s collections and exhibitions to visitors. The training consists of a basic course taught during the school year (September to May), once a week, after school hours. After completing the course, the students can work as volunteers in the museum.

Pintando mi futuro (Painting my Future) and
Arte empoderando a la gente (Art Empowering People)

Both programs, made possible with the support from the Administration of Public Housing of Puerto Rico, were conceived to improve the quality of life of residents of public housing in the South region of Puerto Rico through art workshops, guided tours through the permanent collection, and other mindfulness activities.

Puerto Rico mío

This program, with long term results, attends to the educational needs of students from 3th through 6th grade from Escuela Elemental La Carmen in one of the most disadvantaged towns in the island, Maricao. Weekly art workshops at the school and guided visits to the Museum promote teamwork and collaborative skills among students. At the end of the school year, the students present their art projects in the Community Outreach space at the Museum. This program is made possible with the support of Fundación Banco Popular.

Puertas abiertas (Open Doors) y Semilla dorada (Golden Seed)

Both programs cater to the elderly from Ponce and Southern parts of the island, offering trips to the Museum, art workshops and other activities.
