The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Since opening our self-guided interpretation of the Alexander Majors House, we have seen significant increases in attendance! We need to expand our docent program at this site correspondingly.
The Museum is open for self-guided tours Thursday through Saturday. As a docent for self-guided tours, your duties would include:
opening up and turning on lights inside the house
greeting and explaining Museum rules to visitors
monitoring visitors while they are inside the Museum
being available to answer visitors' questions
This is a great way to get involved at the Museum without the pressure of memorizing a full tour! You will be provided with a "script" of facts and background information to help you answer questions.
The ideal candidate for this position is someone interested in a longer-term, regular volunteer opportunity. Join our community of volunteers and learn more about the importance of local history to our city and region!
