Applications Being Accepted for the Young Interpreter Apprenticeship Program This Summer at The Farmers’ Museum

Written By Editor on 5/10/23 | 5/10/23


 

Cooperstown, New York — Since 1993, the Young Interpreter Program at The Farmers’ Museum in Cooperstown has enabled young people to work side-by-side with the museum’s talented craftspeople at various sites including the Blacksmith Shop, Lippitt Farmhouse, Middlefield Printing Office, and Westcott Shop. In this apprenticeship program designed for young people ages 12-14 (as of May 1, 2023), participants learn about America’s past, develop lifelong skills based on trades and crafts common to ordinary people of rural 19th-century New York State, and share their newfound knowledge with museum visitors.

To apply, please submit a one- to two-page essay (400-800 words) expressing your interest and detailing the reasons why you want to be a Young Interpreter. Essays must be received by May 20, 2023. Candidates will be notified of acceptance by mid-June. Young Interpreters are expected to work one day a week for a period of eight consecutive weeks starting the last week in June and ending the last week in August. Find all the details at FarmersMuseum.org/young-interpreters. If you have questions, please contact Patrick MacGregor at (607) 547-1527 or e-mail p.macgregor@farmersmuseum.org.
