Youth Advisors, Henry and Clemmie, share what we got up to in our last meeting:
We fit a lot into this session. We played some fairly successful icebreaker games, did some admin, discussed the qualities we look for in a volunteer and had a tour of the Queen’s House.

The tour was really enjoyable. The tour guide described the history of the House. It was especially interesting to learn that it was once a place where boys learnt to be sailors and there was a ship outside where they’d stay for weeks at a time.

The Youth Advisors were invited to the opening of a new exhibition at Museum of London Docklands, Many East Ends. We met with the Museum’s youth panel, Junction, and had a tour of the Museum with their Youth Programme Co-ordinator, Lowell Black. Scroll down for lots of pictures of our day!

Terri, one of the Youth Advisors, shares her experience:
On the 20th September 2012, were invited to a private party on the Cutty Sark to interact with other volunteers and trustees from the Museum. We all had a great time meeting people.
