School Programs Docents

We are currently recruiting applicants for the School Programs Docent Training that will begin Friday, September 6, 2019 and continue through Friday, June 26, 2020 (41 weeks on Friday afternoons from 1–3 pm). The one-year training is a series of interactive workshops, which focus on learning the school tour content and on working with school children grades 4 through 12 in a museum setting. Trainees who have successfully completed this one-year training program will begin a residency period in the following school year 2020–2021, during which trainees will continue to learn-by-doing the programs with lots of support from staff and mentor docents.
