Keen to ensure young people’s voices are heard? Curious about world culture and heritage?
This summer the British Museum is hosting an ambitious youth volunteering programme involving seven weeks of professional discovery, training and employability skills followed by the delivery of volunteer-led tours at the British Museum.
The team are searching for 8 motivated and enthusiastic young people (ages 16-24), from range of diverse backgrounds and communities to help form a team of Young Volunteers. If you’re a youth support organisation that work closely with young people, the team are keen to hear from you.
Training for the volunteers will take place in July-August 2018 to explore the Museum as a workplace, and volunteers will work in teams alongside Museum staff to build employability skills, confidence and leadership before working as a team to develop and deliver 3 tours in the Enlightenment Gallery.
Interested applicants can sign up for a Taster Session (15 places) taking place on Tuesday 19 June 2018 1.30-3.30pm. Interested applicants will then be asked to complete a short application to be submitted by Sunday 24 Jun, followed by a group assessment on Thursday 28 June and individual interviews on Friday 29 June.
