The Galway City Museum is looking for elderly people to volunteer as tour guides, to participate in museum-led projects, to facilitate workshops within the museum, and assist with museum activities.
This measure is part of the Senior Cultural Volunteers Programme, which will be launched on Tursday June 26 from 11am to 1pm.
The programme is being launched through the TOURage EU project, which aims to promote active ageing together with finding ways to improve the tourism industry and enchance employment.
The TOURage project, financed by the European Regional Development Fund, brings together 11 partners from eight countries, including Ireland, and was recently selected among the 20 best EU projects dealing with sustainable tourism development.
