Here’s the second post in our volunteer series. This one has be written by Gabby A.
As a volunteer I have gained so much work experience through the Barrick. There’s always a new venture to take on, which allows for a well rounded set of skills. Whether it be managerial skills, office work, museum studies, art handling, or working with children the museum has it all, and I’ve had the opportunity to do it all. This is truly a place for all majors to come and use the knowledge they have gained in the classroom or elsewhere. You can make your volunteering experience whatever you want here. With such an eclectic set of volunteers, you’ll always learn something new from each person that contributes to the museum. Coming here has really been invaluable to me!
