The Friends of Reading Museum (F0RM) 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.
We are looking to recruit volunteers, for approximately three hours a month to help deliver activities in an exciting project for young people. We are looking for an enthusiastic people to lead and work with the children on activities in a Young Friends Club.
Currently, all the friends of Reading museums are adults, so we want to bring in young people into a section for 8–12 year olds in a Saturday club, once a month, which has the potential to develop further. Volunteers would lead and work with the children on activities in the club. The club provides 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.
This role would be ideal for someone:
- looking for experience in the museums and charity sectors
- who enjoys working with adults and children
- is comfortable with leading and helping children learn by discovery would be an asset.
