UTICA, NY – Utica’s Irish Cultural Center Museum is looking for volunteers.
Do you have an overabundance of time on your hands, a willingness to help your community and don’t care about money? Really? Okay, do you have any objections to submitting yourself to human cloning experiments?
On the off-chance that no one fits that call, here’s a more open one: We need volunteers!
The Irish Cultural Center’s museum was granted 501(c)(3) status in 2009, having been chartered by the NYS Education Department as a Historical Society with Collections. A Historical Society with Collections is “…an institution which gathers, preserves, advances or disseminates knowledge about the past through research, collections acquisition and management, preservation and/or interpretation, which carries on educational and public programs on a regular schedule, which makes its programs and resources accessible to the public.”
Ours is a totally volunteer-run museum. To that end, there are several opportunities for volunteers on the ICC’s second floor, supporting both the museum proper and the cultural/entertainment activities that will take place in presentation spaces within and throughout the museum.
If you would like to volunteer some of your time and talents to helping us set up and grow the area’s first Irish Museum and Research Library, we would love to hear from you. We have a need for support in the following areas: Research Assistant, Collections Assistant, Artifact Cataloguing, genealogical research, tour group leader, custodial support, administrative support, membership support, history detective, grant writer, etc.
There are also plans to have a continuous and robust weekly/monthly series of cultural presentations, lectures, performances, movies, etc., and volunteers are requested to schedule and organize these events and to help maintain a persistent event calendar on the soon-to-be-live web site.
Anyone interested should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We promise you a rewarding (if non-paying) experience!
