The Museum needs to be able to retain the best educator/storytellers, while also having a strong enough bench that will allow it to meet peak demand and handle special projects
Nonprofit: The Tenement Museum
For thirty years the Museum has been preserving and interpreting the history of immigration through personal stories making the immigrant experience come alive in a way that forms an emotional bond with its visitors. The key to the Museum’s success is its group of highly trained part-time educators who masterfully tell the stories of the residents of 97 and 103 Orchard Street. The Museum has asked Community Partners to help it design a more sustainable work program that enhances their experience and improves retention of talent.
Project: Educator Staffing, Training, and Support
The project will consider the following issues related to educator staffing:
- Develop a career path so the Museum can retain its best educators.
- Increase the base of part-time educators to handle peak demand.
- Develop compensation and benefits program for each of these groups within the museum’s budget.
- Consider the potential of enhanced training programs for both full-time and part-time personnel.
- Kick-off meeting will take place on February 7th at 5PM at the Tenement Museum located at 103 Orchard Street.
- Time commitment approximately 10-15 hours per month for 3-4 months
