January 11 (Saturday, 12-4 p.m.) Docent Training Introductory Workshop: Upstairs/Downstairs Tour - Small Town, Big Stories. Learn how to guide visitors on tours of the Oberlin Heritage Center's three historic buildings while sharing stories of Oberlin's first 100 years.
Do you love Oberlin and its history and want to help share it with others? Consider becoming an Oberlin Heritage Center volunteer docent - a great way to learn more about Oberlin and its unique history! Talk to Museum Education and Tour Coordinator Liz Schultz ([email protected]) and make arrangements to take a complimentary tour to see whether becoming a volunteer docent or history walk guide is your "cup of tea" before signing up for a docent training workshop. We ask docents to commit to leading at least four tours per year. Our docent team is a fun and diverse group of all ages and backgrounds that meets periodically for informational gatherings, field trips, and more.
The training workshop will begin at the Monroe House. To sign up, contact Liz at (440) 774-1700 or [email protected] by January 8.
