Docents applications Invited for program reboot!
The InfoAge Space Exploration Center seeks volunteers to join its team of docents, who form an essential part of the museum’s education department. They are highly-trained volunteers who lead interactive tours of museum exhibitions for visitors of all ages. Through facilitating discussion and learning, docents enhance the visitor experience and provide a vital link between the art and the audience. In addition to leading tours, docents meet once a month for ongoing professional development.
Prospective docents undergo an extensive training course. The curriculum includes learning not only the role that Camp Evans played in the space race, but also how to operate the TLM-18 antenna, along with its receivers and ancillary equipment.
Classes are taught by museum curators, guest speakers, and seasoned docents. Upon successful completion of training, new docents are asked to commit to leading tours at the museum on a regular basis for a minimum of two years. Currently, the museum offers docent-led tours Wednesday, Saturday, and Sundays between 1:00 and 5:00 PM.
If you are interested in meeting like-minded individuals, learning about science and technology, and advocating for the museum, then apply to become a museum docent today! To apply, contact our Docent Coordinator, Wilma Flinstone at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 855-InfoAge. Applications are also accepted on our Volunteers information page.
