Volunteer at the UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures!
As a living history volunteer, you will first learn about a specific pioneer-era building from Texas History. When you feel ready, you will then be scheduled to present a "day in the life" of those who would have lived in this type of building to a group of students on a field trip for 10 minute segments. The buildings are an 1800's westward expansion era fort, an adobe home, a school house, a log house and a barn.
The time commitment is only one morning a week M-F for a few hours.
Dress in character, learn from our scripts and from our library, plus add your own knowledge if applicable. Orientation and initial training is provided and ongoing training opportunities are available.
This exciting volunteer opportunity helps educate school age kids on a variety of ways that cultures of the past have shaped the Texas we live in today.
