Maloof Teen Advisors



The Maloof Teen Advisors Program offers local high school students artistic learning opportunities and experiences.


Sam Maloof believed in giving back to the community and supporting endeavours for future generations. The Maloof Teen Advisors (MTA) are a group of teens from the Chaffey Joint Union High School District who work together to develop innovative tours of the historic home and property for schools in the district.  They also create student art exhibits in the Pyramid Room Gallery.  Through the MTA program, Maloof teens are given the opportunity to be immersed in the arts and culture of the Maloof legacy.



Mi Punto de Vista (My Point of View) youth education initiative aims to take student perspectives on Sam Maloof's story and collection through CJUHSD class visits and weekly advisor meetings at SAMFAC.


Mi Punto de Vista Youth Education Initiative has been generously sponsored by a lead grant from the James Irvine Foundation, with support from the Rose Hills Foundation, and the Community Foundation of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.
