The Museum Of Flight

  • 3 people are interested

Docents are among the first people to directly interact with visitors. Docents give tours, conduct aviation and space-related talks, and may be given the opportunity to present school programs. Docents are stationed throughout the Museum to answer questions about the exhibits and artifacts.

Individuals should possess excellent communication skills, teaching or public speaking experience, the ability to work with diverse groups of children, adults, staff, and volunteers, and be able to accept supervision and evaluation of your volunteer work. Shift availability depends upon current needs.

The next available class starts in March 2022. Classes are weekly on Saturdays from 9:00AM to 1:00PM. To graduate, you cannot miss more than two classes, pass a 50 question test, and be able to provide a 30-minute tour. Classes will include study of our exhibits, learning presentation and teaching skills, and taking field trips of applicable sites. Volunteers are required to pay a $25 materials fee for this course and encouraged to become a member of the Museum of Flight.

The process for becoming a docent includes a group interview with the Volunteer Program Manager, Volunteer Coordinator, and a member of the Docent Training Committee.
