Become a Volunteer
2011 Volunteer Training Schedule
The first in a series of volunteer information and training sessions will be held on Saturday, March 19th at 10 am. A total of four training sessions will be held. The other sessions will be held on Saturdays April 2nd, April 16th and May 7th. All sessions will begin at 10am and conclude by noon.
The museum’s greatest need is for “docents”. A docent is a host of the museum, welcoming visitors and acting as a guide and interpreter of the exhibits. Docents are essential to the museum’s operation: without docents our museum couldn’t be open on a regular basis. Becoming a docent is a great way to learn more about Milton and to share what you know with visitors to the museum. If you are a friendly person who loves learning and sharing, this important volunteer position is for you.
