We like to have two volunteers for docent/working duty for each day the museum is open:
- Thursday – 11 am to 3 pm
- Friday – 11 am to 3 pm
- Saturday – 11 am to 3 pm
Volunteers can be scheduled for regular shifts, but if a family or medical issue comes up backup volunteers are needed to fill in. We have a few dedicated members who can be counted on to fill in in a pinch, but we can always use more backup volunteers.
Getting into the volunteer docent program is easy and painless. After signing up, a new volunteer will be given a training manual containing written information about a docent’s duties and a video outlining docent procedures. New volunteers also get on-the-job training with an experienced docent.
Volunteering as a docent can be an enjoyable experience, as docents regularly meet interesting people. You never know who’s going to drop in.
