Be time travelers guiding inquisitive 4th graders through a day in the life of a typical pioneer family in our historic buildings at the Aurora Colony Museum Village, while sharing the history of early Oregon. Volunteers are asked to commit for six weeks, one day per week, with an option of an additional six weeks if desired.
The living history program at The Village runs from mid-April through the second week of June each year. Fourth grade students from Oregon schools come here eager to learn and experience hands-on what life was like in the late 1800's. After training, you'll help students dip candles, learn about rudimentary woodworking, bake a loaf of bread, create a quilt block, and more! Whatever your interests, we can teach you the skills you need -- as long as you like working with kids! :-) Volunteer now for our popular education program that re-creates the pioneer heritage of the famous Old Aurora Colony.
