Docent Training Opportunities

Would you like to share Oberlin's nationally-significant history with visitors and meet people from near and far?


The Oberlin Heritage Center is looking for enthusiastic volunteers and offering two training workshops to lead popular tours and history walks. Prior tour or history knowledge is not required--just a passion to learn and engage with others!


Freedoms Friends: Underground Railroad & Abolitionist History Walk

Upstairs / Downstairs Guided Tour: Small Town, Big Stories


Volunteers are asked to commit to leading at least four tours or history walks per year. Prior to training you can arrange to take a free tour in advance to see what it’s all about. To register for training or reserve a free advance tour, call (440)774-1700 or e-mail [email protected]. Sign up today!
