The city of Raleigh's Historical Resources and Museums Program is looking for kids ages 8 to 13 who are interested in becoming junior interpreters.
The program aims to engage Raleigh's kids through hands-on experiences, field trips and volunteering to build an appreciation for local history and inspire community participation, according to a city press release.
The free program gives kids the opportunity to spend time at the City of Raleigh Museum, the Pope House, Mordecai Historic Park, the Raleigh Trolley, the Borden Building and the Tucker House. The group will meet on the first Saturday of each month and cover a variety of topics including Native Americans in Wake County, slavery and the turn of the century.
This is an ongoing program that kids can participate in for as long as they like. The first workshop is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. to noon, Feb. 8, at the City of Raleigh Museum on Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh. That session will cover the details and expectations.
