Young Volunteers
Ripon Museums Trust
Description of the role:

Ripon Museums Trust has created a new opportunity for young people aged 10 to 18 to get involved with our three museums. The Young Volunteers Club meets for monthly Saturday sessions as well as at other times throughout the year, such as during School Holidays and when we hold special events. We would like the Club to develop and grow around the interests and ideas of its members, as well as benefiting the museums in the wider and longer terms.

Practical information:

All 3 museums are within walking distance of Ripon City Centre. The Prison and Police Museum is on St. Marygate, Ripon HG4 1LX; The volunteerhouse Museum is on Sharow View, Allhallowgate, Ripon HG4 1LE and the Courthouse Museum is on Minster Road, Ripon HG4 1QS
