Thank you

School Programs Docents

Thank you for your interest. We are no longer accepting applications for the school docents program this year.

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, during which trainees will continue to learn-by-doing the programs with lots of support from staff and mentor docents.
