Maritime Museum Needs Help
Docent Training Starts Soon
December 1, 2015
Embarcadero?Have you ever wanted to volunteer or donate your time and not know where to begin? This is your opportunity to become a docent volunteer at the top ranked maritime museum in North America. 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 5, 2016. To obtain more information about the Docent Training Program contact Docent Training Coordinator Nancy Matthews at 619-234-9153 Ext. 101 or office @sdmaritime.org. If you are 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.
