California Historical Society has been asked to engage the public in the history of the Old Mint through Docent led tours.
These tours occur twice a month, one two weekdays a month.
Docents are given two trainings: one in the building with a historian and architect who is well versed in both touring guests and the building in general and one with the Docent manager.
Docents will gain a new understanding of this rarely experienced historic building and be able to share unique historical moments with a wide array of guests.
This is a wonderful way to share San Francisco's history with the public and learn public facing skills, and about how historical organizations interact with the public.
The trainings equal between 3-6 hours (including readings, meetings, and research) and Docents do 1-2 shifts a month for one hour per shift.
