During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Do you want to engage, involve, and connect with Louisiana history? Become a museum docent at the Old Governor’s Mansion! We invite you to join us to promote, preserve, and celebrate the unique culture and history of our state.
As a docent, you will be trained to offer adult and school group tours on the history of the nine governors who called the Mansion home. Tours last approximately 1 hour. Groups are not scheduled on Saturdays, so this position is Tuesday through Friday and on an as-needed basis.
Need volunteer or service hours? We welcome student docents!
Docents receive complementary membership to Preserve Louisiana, which includes Free Admission to the Old Governor’s Mansion; invitations to all Preserve Louisiana programs and events, including Heritage Lectures, Preservation Workshops, and the Annual Old Governor’s Mansion Gala; and volunteer appreciation lunches and celebratory gatherings.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
