About

The DAR Museum is recruiting education volunteers to assist with family, school, and Girl Scout programming.

Family Programs: The DAR Museum hosts monthly family days and an annual large-scale family event in the fall. All events are held on Saturdays. Education volunteers will prepare materials before the event, facilitate activities and craft projects, and help address visitor questions as needed.

School Programs: Education volunteers will lead school tours for 10-15 K-6th grade students. All tours last one hour and pre-written tour outlines are provided. We currently offer a program on patterns and shapes in quilts for K-3rd grade students. School programs are available M-F.

Girl Scout Programs: The DAR Museum offers Girl Scout programming for Brownies and Juniors. Programs are 1.5 - 2 hours and include discussion, games, a tour, and a craft making project. An pre-written outline for the program is provided. Girl Scout events are held once a month on Saturdays.

Past experience working with children is encouraged. Successful applicants should have an interest in history and/or decorative arts. This position requires flexibility, timeliness, creativity and an enthusiasm for working with the public. Applicants may be asked to have a background check.

Volunteers are self-scheduled, thus the time commitment varies accordingly to volunteer availability. Positions available immediately.
