Volunteering is easy!

So I have noticed that a lot of you are misunderstanding how easy the sign up is. :) This volunteering opportunity is not an "one time" volunteering opportunity. By applying to be a volunteer, you are as if "subscribing" to the museum's volunteering newsletters. When opportunities open up, the museums will sent an email to you directly asking if any of the opportunities fancies you. If the positions/opportunities catches your eyes, then sign up for them. That doesn't mean you have to sign up for a position. If you don't have time or don't find any of the positions interesting, you are not obligated to sign up. :) It is not like they will kick you out if you don't sign up (trust me, they are SUPER nice). Of course we would love for you to be actively participating but that does not mean you have to volunteer for every single opportunity that becomes available (you could though).

But keep this in mind when you are signing up for opportunities: the positions are at a first come, first serve basis. That means if you want to volunteer for a specific position, sign up quick! :)

If you like to "subscribe" to the museums' volunteering emails, apply today!
