Do you love history and wonder about what happens behind the scenes at museums? Are you interested in joining our team of Junior Docents? Junior Docents are volunteers between the ages of 10-15. The Junior Docent Program is a year-long program, that runs January-December.
Jean Louise, Virginia, Hope, Abby, Emily, Libby, Wilson, Eleanor, Isabelle, Emma Grace, Larsen, Mallory, Elsie, Keegan, Zoe, Trystan, Mary Clare, Anna, Andrew, Josephine, Mary, Meaghan, Ainsley, Rachel!
One element of the Junior Docent program are S.M.A.R.T. projects. These projects, which Smash Museums And Research Together, give Docents the opportunity to do real public history work, by researching a historical topic and presenting the information in a fun and engaging way. Check out some of the amazing work our Junior Docents have completed this year!
