Education and Public Outreach
The Department of Education and Public Outreach (DEPO) serves the BARC and BM’s audiences both on- and off-site, through education, exhibition development, public programming, visitor services, Web and social media, and evaluation. The department is actively involved in developing new ways to make history come alive through innovative outreach programs that will reach the widest possible number of visitors.
Volunteers are a vital and valued resource at the BARC. Our volunteers help on field excavations, process and describe excavation material, help in the process of analysis, digitize archival materials, maintaining databases, assist with reference service, and help with special projects. The volunteer department will discuss any needs that prospective or existing volunteers may have in order to identify the best volunteering opportunities available and to support their full and safe involvement.
