The Cabbagetown Regent Park Museum relies on the hard work and enthusiasm of its volunteers, interns and summer students in all facets of the museum.
The museum currently has fourteen students and post-grads at our office and helping to organize our ever-growing artefact collection.
CRP Museum is continually receiving applications from promising students whom we hope to interview in the near future.
The following is a list of current volunteers, students and interns, their background and what they add to our museum.
