In today’s meeting, the Youth Board members and I worked on developing our tour techniques to deliver tours in the near future, and were guided by Dan, a tour guide at the museum. The skills we gained were invaluable, as we learnt a variety of methods and points on how to fully immerse visitors and also came across a few artefacts that had interesting stories that we didnt previously know of. Each of us have particular interests within the collections at the museum, so a range of perspectives from each youth board tour guide will be available.
In addition to that, the Youth Board will also have a monthly column on the Volunteer Update Newsletter, the first of which was written by Emma and the upcoming edition will be by Laura. Also, our graphics for the lockers are also well underway.
We will keep you updated on any of our exciting developments.
