ORGANIZATION: Indiana University South Bend Center for Community Engagement

What is a Docent?

A Docent is a Museum volunteer who leads Museum tours, presenting interactive talks about artifacts, historical figures, and architecture.

Why should I become a Docent?

  • Having the experience as a Student Docent allows you to strengthen your resume-for graduate school or a job. Successful Student Docents benefit from letters of recommendation written by curatorial and education staff members at the Museum.
  • Experiences gained as a Student Docent include an increased knowledge of history, teaching techniques, public speaking, and interaction with audiences.
  • Student Docents also become engaged in the community and can make a difference in so many ways.

What is the time commitment of being a Docent?

The Docent Training Program is six, one-hour sessions. The History Museum provides all the materials, including a script. After successful training, Student Docents are required to give at least two tours per month and make a two-year commitment. We are happy to work around your academic schedule.
