What makes a great docent?
A willingness to learn, to explore and to share.
The life of a docent
- In depth training by Museum staff.
- Giving back and improving the lives of the next generation, through Museum educational programs.
- Docents provide programs that cover a vast array of science and Natural History. From astronomy, Chumash culture, paleontology, birds, insects, oceanography, mammals or marine life.
- We teach our docents how to present information in an engaging way.
We have docents who are only here part of the year and we are very flexible in both training and teaching times. Generally, docents provide one weekday morning per week during the school year.
Thursday-Friday, 9:30 AM-12:30 PM
