The FOY staff are able to obtain life skills and good habits that includes: organization, punctuality, social etiquette, responsibility and being respectful. Their main job is to assist customers, sell tickets, and answer any questions the visitors might have. They also hand out brochures, do administration work, and make sure everything goes smoothly in the museum.
