Spring School Group Greeters
Spring is often a busy time at the Museum with increased visits from school groups. Friendly, outgoing volunteers are needed to help greet and direct classes on their visit. Greeters welcome classes as they arrive at the Museum, help establish guidelines, direct the groups within the Museum, and assist in answering questions. If you enjoy public speaking and working with children, this is the volunteer position for you. Volunteers must be adults and able to work for 3 hours per shift. Training will be provided in late February and early March. For more information contact Elizabeth Bazan at firstname.lastname@example.org or (217) 558-6696.
