Do you enjoy working with kids? Learning and sharing local history? Join our education team and present history to schools, home school groups, and other organizations. In 2018, our educational programs reached 14,000 local students!
Volunteer presenters lead a guided conversation using the artifacts provided to make history come alive. Each presentation is 30 minutes long and can take place at the school or at the museum during a field trip.
Scheduling is Monday-Friday, between the hours of 9am and 3pm as needed. Volunteers should be comfortable with public speaking and working with children, passionate about education, and have an interest in history. Being able to lift up to 50lbs is helpful, but not expected. Ideal for retired teachers.
Education Volunteers will receive training materials and have the option of shadowing other volunteers before conducting an education program.
