North Vancouver Museum and Archives
Sept. 23, 2016
The North Vancouver Museum & Archives mission is to engage, strengthen and inspire our community by exploring history, connecting people and sharing ideas.
Volunteer Opportunity Description:
If you enjoy working with children, want to share your enthusiasm for history, or are looking to broaden your own experience, becoming a Docent for the North Vancouver Museum & Archives is an excellent opportunity. As a Docent, you will be on the front line, introducing children to the history and stories of their community. Also, being a part of an engaging and dynamic team, our hands-on school programs and the crazy things kids say make being a Docent fun and entertaining. We offer substantial training, skill-building workshops, flexible shifts and a chance to learn more about North Vancouver’s colourful history.
Docents present active hands-on educational programs to school children. Assist with program preparation and takedown.
