The Friends of Reading Museum is looking to recruit a volunteer Activity Leader, for approximately three hours a month rising to three hours per week, to help deliver activities in an exciting new project for young people. We are looking for an enthusiastic person to lead and work with the children on activities in a Young Friends Club.
The Friends exist to create a greater awareness of Reading Museum, and to promote the importance of the Museum’s collections and their presentation to the community. We raise funds for the purchase of artworks and artefacts and support activities which would not otherwise be possible.
Currently, all the friends of Reading museums are adults. As a start, we want to bring in young people by forming a section for 8–12 year olds. The idea is that we set up a Saturday club, once or twice a quarter, which has the potential to develop further. The volunteer would lead and work with the children on activities in the club.
The club would provide opportunities for children from all backgrounds, without discrimination, in a safe environment, where F0RM’s policies, practices and ethos encourage all members to adopt an inclusive, friendly approach.
The role will be ideal for someone:
- Looking for experience in the museums and charity sectors
- enjoys working with adults and children
- comfortable with leading and helping children learn by discovery would be an asset.
