Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: MOJAVE DESERT HERITAGE AND CULTURAL ASSOCIATION

The Mojave Desert Heritage and Cultural Association (MDHCA) is looking for volunteer docents in Goffs, California, 30 miles northwest of Needles, on historic Route 66. The 75-acre site comprises the 1914 Goffs’ Schoolhouse Museum, outdoor exhibits of historical artifacts, workspaces, & living quarters. The good-natured, people-person that would welcome some periodic solitude would welcome Route 66 travelers and visitors at the Goffs’ Schoolhouse Museum, handle bookstore sales, and encourage the visitors to a self-walking tour of the grounds 5 days a week that includes Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We offer an RV hookup and utilities are provided or (or lodging facilities) on site for free for the duration, a one-year MDHCA membership, and an East Mojave Desert experience for the duration of your stay. We are looking to fill positions throughout the entire year - so, we are looking for commitments of two-months or more. Note: You must have reliable transportation and understand that the nearest grocery store is 30 miles away. An application with references is required and a background check will be performed.
