What difference will you make?

Volunteers will have the opportunity to directly work with students, families and adult learners, engaging the Museum's learning audiences with branding and helping to inspire further consideration and debate. For our youngest audiences this can ignite a curiosity in topics from branding and marketing, to history and social change - for older learners our programme directly contributes to career planning and professional development.

As a learning volunteer you will also help to expand the Museum's learning audiences, enabling more learners to benefit from our unique collection, supporting the Museum's role as an expert provider of branding education, and increasing our reach as an independent charity.

What's in it for the volunteer?

The Museum of Brands is committed to supporting the development of all volunteers, and work to tailor our opportunities to reflect the interests of each volunteer. Learning volunteers can support the full programme to gain broad experience in Museum learning, or they can focus on particular areas including marketing, database building, resource development, programming and content development, teaching, professional/adult learning, family learning.
