Maritime Museum Needs Help

Docents And Volunteers Needed

SAN DIEGO―Have you ever wanted to volunteer or donate your time and not know where to begin? The top ranked Maritime Museum in North America can use your help. Learn about worldwide maritime history with a special focus on the 16th through 21st centuries represented by the vessels and artifacts in the Maritime Museum's collection. As a docent you will be able to engage with museum visitors, fielding their questions and sharing your knowledge thereby enriching their experience. Training is carried out in a series of lectures, suggested readings and walking tours.

Why not join other aspiring volunteers aboard Star of India for the series of lectures and ship tours beginning on Tuesday, January 7? To obtain more information about the Docent Training Program contact Docent/Volunteer Coordinator Jeff Loman at 619-234-9153 Ext. 135 or jloman@sdmaritime.org. If unable to attend the Tuesday morning training classes ask about the mentorship program whereby you work one-on-one with an experienced docent to build the necessary skill-set. Membership in the Maritime Museum is required.
