Volunteer Opportunity

The Lynn Museum is collaborating with the Lynn Public Schools to engage with third-grade classes for our multi-visit program, Lynn Museum History Detectives, during the 2018-2019 academic year. The program will employ our exhibit “Industry and Craft: People at Work in Lynn” to introduce the students to Lynn’s history. We are seeking volunteers to assist with the museum visits.

Ideal candidates will have morning weekday availability, an interest in educating with museum artifacts, and an enthusiasm for interacting with elementary age students. Experience in education is a plus but not required. No special background in history of Lynn is needed – we will provide training.

Interested individuals should email Judith Marshall, Education Manager, at judith@lynnmuseum.org for more information.
