Any young person who is interested in developing some new skills is invited to take up a volunteering opportunity in Stromness during the October holidays.
As part of the commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the scuttling of the German Fleet in Scapa Flow, the Stromness Museum are hosting a conference to explore the Orkney perspective of the scuttling and Kolekto, who are running the events, are looking for volunteers to help out.
‘Scapa 100 – The Orkney Story’ takes place in Stromness from Thursday 17-Saturday 19 October 2019, and there are several opportunities for young people to volunteer and help out, develop new skills and learn more about what is involved in running an event.
Volunteering opportunities are available in the following areas:
You can volunteer for as many of the sessions as you are able to. This is a great opportunity for a young person who may be interested in a career which involves working with the public, organising events or working in a technical career.
Full details of each of the roles and when the sessions will be held can be found at the link below. If you are interested, please contact Mark Jenkins at firstname.lastname@example.org
