Museum of Oxford introduces flexible volunteering challenge system

Published: Monday, 22nd January 2018

The Museum of Oxford is introducing a volunteer challenge system designed to bring together digital and volunteering.

Volunteer Makers is a flexible volunteering scheme which engages users with a variety of volunteering challenges. The Museum of Oxford has become one of Volunteer Makers’ pioneering organisations providing this service to residents across Oxford.

Once volunteers have signed up as a Museum of Oxford Volunteer Maker they will be able to view and choose to accept a range of challenges including photographing and reviewing exhibitions, providing feedback on TripAdvisor, and becoming a regular volunteer. Challenges are updated frequently to give volunteers new opportunities to donate their time towards helping the Museum of Oxford. 

Anyone over the age of 16 is able to sign up as a Museum of Oxford Volunteer Maker and start accepting challenges.

Councillor Dee Sinclair, Board Member for Culture and Communities said: “This is the perfect opportunity to expand volunteering to those who may not be able to regularly be involved. Volunteering can be flexible and can easily fit around your life.

People can do a lot of things in one minute, and now volunteering for Museum of Oxford is one of them. Volunteer Makers highlights how easy volunteering can be and how even the smallest amount of time can still make a difference.

Alongside the Museum of Oxford redevelopment, this is an exciting time to get involved in volunteering.”
