Regular Help

Join our Youth Panel

Are you aged between 16 and 25? The Museum of Oxford's Youth Panel is a social group of volunteers who meet up and create events for the Museum. In the past, the group have planned live music, comedy, family events and Halloween themed events. They usually meet for an hour and a half on an evening once a fortnight at the Museum and they communicate through Facebook. Exciting and a great change to gain skills, meet people and have a real impact on the Museum!

What's involved?

The group usually meets on a weekday evening every other week. Meetings usually start at 5.30pm and run until 7pm

There may be more meetings in the run up to an event and there is often a need to meet in smaller groups outside of these meetings

Refreshments are provided!
