Museum announces fall docent program

in Community by

The Beaufort History Museum is recruiting the Fall 2014 class of volunteer docents to lead tours and serve as community liaisons. Museum President Anna Shaffer announced the new class sessions.

“The training curriculum will cover all aspects of history relating to Beaufort. Our educators will provide docents with knowledge of the museum’s collections, history and mission,” Shaffer said. “Once docents have completed the training process, they will be asked to serve approximately four shifts per month and will commit to a one-year period of service to the museum.”

An informational session for interested candidates will be held August 28 at the Beaufort History Museum from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.  Docent training classes will be held weekly from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. from Sept. 4 through Sept. 25.

All sessions will be held at The Beaufort History Museum, which has recently relocated to The Arsenal at 713 Craven Street, Beaufort. For more information on the docent program, or other volunteer opportunities with the museum, contact Lorrie Burleyknoles at docent@beaufortschistorymuseum.com.
