Cottonwood AZ (July 26, 2021) – The Verde Historical Society is seeking two volunteer team leaders for its public education programming at the Clemenceau Heritage Museum in Cottonwood. A team leader to coordinate educational programs for children would be responsible for overseeing three existing programs for children already in operation and also for developing elementary grade school activities, including school group tours. All programs are based upon the Arizona State Standards for Teaching. Leadership, organizational and computer skills would be helpful. This is a perfect position for a retired educator or for one who enjoys interacting with younger children from preschool to fourth grade.
The second position, a team leader to coordinate educational adult programming for life-long learners, would be responsible for re-establishing and overseeing a popular historical society monthly community based speaker series, re-establishing programs and activities with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Yavapai College and introducing the Arizona Humanities speaker series -AZ SPEAKS- to the public. A knowledge of Verde Valley community residents and resources, computer technology, and speaking ability would be helpful.
Training is provided for both positions. Both positions may include time working from home as well as time in the museum. Volunteers must hold membership or become new members in the historical society. Interested persons may apply to the Verde Historical Society located in the Clemenceau Heritage Museum at 1 North Willard Street -on the Mingus and Willard roundabout- in Cottonwood where a volunteer form can be picked up or may call 928-634-2868 to have one sent.
