School Program Volunteer at Museum of Surrey

School Program Volunteer at Museum of Surrey

 

 

 

Want to be part of something BIG? School Program volunteers give class tours and deliver pre-written programs to elementary school-aged children.

 

What might that look like? Well, after setting up the space with museum staff, you will work from reading notes to create an ultra-memorable museum experience complete with real artifacts. You will witness the wonder on tiny faces and chuckle at their fresh observations. After, you will help tidy up the artifacts and chat with museum staff about what went well and how we can make school programs even better.

 

You don’t need to have teaching experience but a smile, patience and a sense of humour are mandatory. Like the children, you enjoy summer vacation so you’re only available during the school year. You’re comfortable taking a page out of their book to learn the programs… and then deliver them with confidence.

 

If this describes you, please fill out the application form. For more information, email heritagevolunteers@surrey.ca or call 604-502-6461
