Guide elementary school students through pioneer arts and crafts activities during field trips to Job Carr Cabin Museum. Help them imagine what life was like on the Oregon Trail. You'll assist Museum staff in providing a fun, interactive field trip experience for students in grades K-5.
We'll provide information and training to help you engage children in hands-on activities and games, interpreting frontier life. Field trip activities may include designing quilts, making butter, hopscotch, gunny sack races, and more! No experience necessary. You may also lead children on history walks through historic Old Town Tacoma.
We welcome volunteers of ages, interests and skills levels. Volunteers with background in education, history and/or customer service are strongly encouraged to apply. You must be reliable, with excellent attendance, promptness and courteous behavior.
Field trips are generally scheduled on weekday mornings.
All volunteers must complete a volunteer application form and successfully pass a security background check. http://www.jobcarrmuseum.org/
