(Elizabeth City) Highly motivated young students between the ages 13 to 17 are invited to become part of the exciting Junior Docent program. Junior Docents are museum volunteers who are trained to participate in family and children’s programming and to help museum visitors better understand and appreciate the history of our area. Junior Docents assist in a variety of programming including: gallery tours, costumed interpretation, living history events, creative children’s activities, gallery carts and hands-on-history.
Becoming a Junior Docent is an opportunity for teenagers to explore history, develop skills in leadership, time management and public speaking while at the same time making a significant contribution to the community.
Selection is based upon application, 2 teacher recommendations, parent or guardian permission, and an interview. Junior Docents are required to volunteer at least four hours a month and are expected to remain in the program for one year.
If you would like to participate in this exciting program as a Junior Docent please call Meg Puckett at 252-335-1453.
