Volunteers needed at the County Museum in Redlands
The Education Division is recruiting volunteers to be gallery interpreters at the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands. Gallery interpreters chat with visitors informally about the exhibits and collections at the museum.
“Our volunteers are the connection between the museum’s collections and visitors,” said Curator of Education Jolene Redvale “They fulfill an extremely important role in our educational mission. New volunteers are provided with training in interpretive skills and given on-going opportunities to continue a commitment to learning. We teach content and skills to help volunteers begin a rewarding experience in service to your community.”
There will be two orientation sessions; Wednesday, January 12 and Saturday, January 15, from 10am to 11:30am. Potential volunteers are recommended to make reservation to attend this orientation; those interested can attend one session based on their schedule. Additional training sessions will follow in January and early February.
