Pacific Aviation Museum is Seeking Volunteers for New Student Education and Tour Programs

Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor’s Education Department has new student education and tour programs for 2012 and requests volunteers to help deliver these programs, plus develop additional ones, help manage events, process data entry, research, transcribe oral histories, and work on the Museum’s successful outreach program to 6th graders, “Barnstorming.”

Other volunteers are need in all areas of Museum operations, as well, from docents delivering tours to mechanics helping restore historic aircraft in the Restoration Shop.

The education programs target pre-school students through high school seniors and focus on math, science, social studies, technology and engineering connected to the principles of aviation and history of aviation in the Pacific. The opportunities are perfect for those retired from the fields of education. The Museum will train and a minimum of at least one day a month is required to be a volunteer.
