City of Burnaby - Burnaby Village Museum
Collections volunteers help the Museum to continually digitize our ephemera collection (brochures, certificates, postcards, paper records) and refine information in our database. This work involves using a scanner and editing Excel spreadsheets. This work is best suited to volunteers with attention to detail, passion for accuracy and an temperament for repetition. Volunteers receive direction from the Assistant Curator.
Under the direction of the Conservator, volunteers repair, maintain and sometimes operate vintage cars from the Museum’s collection. This category also includes volunteers who repair, maintain and sometimes operate steam equipment and mechanized musical instruments.
Under the direction of the Assistant Curator, research volunteers conduct collections-based research online, related to objects in the collections storage and in the Village.
School Program Volunteers are trained to give specific set programs, which are designed to complement the BC curriculum. School programs generally run September-November and January-April. School Program Volunteers dress in costume, lead school children and ESL
Working under the direction of the Costume Coordinator, Sewing Circle Volunteers use a sewing machine and a Serger to perform tasks related to the museum’s costuming department. This may include but is not limited to hand sewing, ironing, needle work, mending and other tasks as required.
