Historic Site Docent
1 person is interested
Volunteer docents lead guided tours and assist with school groups at Historic Stagville. Site staff provide training and support. Docents lead tours for the public or for students, as well as welcoming visitors and orienting them to the site. With school programs, volunteers have opportunities for hands-on activities and interactive skills for students, not simply traditional guided tours. Volunteers can also assist in the visitors center without leading tours, with research or other on-going projects. Extensive prior history knowledge is not necessary, but interest in North Carolina history or African-American history is always helpful! Volunteers need good people skills, a willingness to discuss uncomfortable subjects, and eagerness to share stories about the African-American experience at Stagville.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
