Overview shot of house at night

House Tour Guides lead visitors and school groups through the Rotch-Jones-Duff historic house, interpreting the stories of the three families and staff that lived and worked there, relating New Bedford's past, and placing the site within larger contexts of maritime history, the abolition movement, Quakerism, and the entrepreneurial spirit. Guides must successfully complete an eight week training program, given free at the RJD, as well as mentor with a senior-level Guide before they begin giving tours. A substantial time commitment is expected in return for the investment made by RJD in Guide training. This position is suitable for anyone with interest in education, teaching, working with the public, and above all, a curiosity to learn themselves.
