Young people

London Transport Museum (LTM) has been delivering Young Volunteer projects for 7 years, as part of our Young People’s Skills Programme (YPSP).

YPSP uses the collection at London Transport Museum linking it to Transport for London to provide access to a range of inspiring and fun activities that meet the needs of young Londoners.

We offer various opportunities for diverse groups of young people to develop and deliver a meaningful project with the Museum. Throughout the year we recruit for Young Volunteer projects.

Young Volunteer Projects

Young Volunteer projects are a fun and creative way to get work experience by leading on developing and delivering a project with LTM.

The projects include CV and employment training and the opportunity to complete a Bronze Arts Award qualification.

This project is focused on creating activities for families during our Open Depot Weekend (Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September). We are looking for applicants who are interested in creative learning, arts and crafts, or looking to gain new skills in the museum and heritage sector.
