Docent (Tour Guide)

Applicants who have interest in public speaking, tourism, hospitality, and history would be well-suited for this volunteer opportunity. Docents give guided tours of our gorgeous Queen Anne Victorian mansion to our guests. This position is a very low-stress one and the work is performed in a pleasant, climate-controlled setting. Volunteers would give tours on Thursday, Friday, Saturday (11 AM-3PM) and their schedule is based upon their availability. The museum is open for tours from April to October, so please factor that into your decision.
