Play Museum Facilitators Needed
We are recruiting new volunteers for the Play Museum, an exciting place where children ages 3-10 can learn -- through play -- about art, people, and nature. Friendly, energetic volunteers are needed to greet and interact with families and groups and keep the exhibit neat. Volunteers must be adults or teens 16 and up and able to work 2 shifts a month. Training is provided. Interested? Apply today! For an application or more information contact Elizabeth Bazan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 217-782-5993.
The Illinois State Museum is looking for friendly, out-going individuals to welcome visitors to the Museum. Greeters would man the Museum's information desk to answer questions and offer orientation to visitors. Greeters may also help with small administrative tasks as needed. A knowledge of the Springfield area, including local restaurants and attractions would be helpful. Volunteers must submit an application and complete an interview with the volunteer coordinator. Greeters are asked to commit to two, 3-hour shifts per month. For an application or more information contact Elizabeth Bazan at email@example.com or 217-782-5993.
