Project Description:

The City of Raleigh Museum offers education programs to schools that are hands-on and interactive. The museum teaches students ranging from kindergarten to middle school on various topics related to the history of Raleigh. This opportunity will require training on the programs by museum staff.

 

This opportunity is mostly Tuesday-Fridays 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. on scheduled days. This is an ongoing volunteer opportunity. 

 

Volunteer Duty Description:

Volunteers will be trained on specific education programs and will facilitate those programs to field trip students. Prior knowledge of the history of Raleigh is not required.

We will train you on all of the programs and you will have the opportunity to shadow the programs before facilitating as well.  All volunteers will need to pass a background check before volunteering.
