Dakota City Heritage Village is a living history museum of 1900-era buildings located next to the Dakota County Fairgrounds in Farmington. We are looking for outgoing adults to dress in period costume and play the part of a One-Room Schoolteacher to elementary-aged children when they come to our village for a school field trip. Using our classroom guide, you will lead the class in 1900-era school lessons and recess for about 2 hours. You might also supervise their lunch and serve them an ice cream cone after lunch. Tour dates and times are set by the school, Mondays through Fridays sometime between 9am and 3pm. Spring tours run mid-April through June and fall tours run mid-September through November. Volunteer time is typically 2-1/2 hours, as many days as you want to sign up for. The only requirement for volunteering is a willingness to come to training and learn our program. No experience necessary but it is helpful if you like to "perform" and can speak in front of groups. Orientation, training and costumes are provided before you start. Contact Dakota City at 651-460-8050 or education@dakotacity.org"

Volunteers for Dakota City's school programs get the chance to work with children of all ages and teach them the history of Dakota County and a rural 1900 village. Volunteers also work in a fun environment and meet new people through the Dakota City events and programs
