The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Tour guides share information with visitors about life in early Denver, the people who lived and worked in the home and the changes to the house over time. Guided house tours weave together the stories of the many women who lived and worked in the home and the impact of the families on early Denver. Tours also include information about the architecture and furnishings of the home. Tour guides at the Byers-Evans House lead all visitors through the 10,000 square foot home and provide tours for groups of 1 - 15 people. Each shift is three hours and fifteen minutes. The maximum number of tours a guide will provide in one day is three.
Tour guides should have a knowledge of and passion for history, feel comfortable speaking in front of groups, and be physically able to stand, walk, climb stairs and talk for up to three hours in a row.
