Volunteer Help Wanted: Dynamic Education Program Docents!
The Stamford Historical Society is looking for dedicated, enthusiastic and energetic individuals to staff its extremely successful education programs. If you enjoy working with children, want to share your enthusiasm for history, or are looking to broaden your own experience, becoming an Education Docent for the Stamford History Center is an excellent opportunity. Teaching experience is helpful, but not required.
Docents will bring in classroom programs into elementary schools during the school year and host onsite programs at the Stamford History Center. All docents will be trained to lead our hands-on programs in a series of workshops. Programs take place on school days.
The specific days and dates and hours will be confirmed with the school participants.
PLEASE RESPOND via this site and we will get back to you.
Thanks for your interest!
