Museum Docents (Volunteers)

volunteerThe Children's Peace Pavilion, on the average, touches the lives of approximately 4,000 visitors each year. The majority of our visitors come in groups larger than 10 people, so it is with these groups that we need the most frequent help.

There are two ways to volunteer:

• Call-as-needed volunteer
• Specific day volunteer

Most groups that visit the Pavilion are here for about two hours. As a Museum Docent, you will be asked to assist or interact with the visitors in one of the four peace concept areas.  If we do not have a tour on the day you choose to volunteer, there are always numerous tasks that need to be accomplished in preparation for a tour.

Volunteer Training

No experience is necessary and all training is provided to prepare volunteers to serve as museum docents. All volunteers will be screened and provided training on child protection policies.
