June 7 - Docent Training Workshop
June 7 (Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.). Love Oberlin and its history and want to help share it with others? Consider becoming an Oberlin Heritage Center volunteer docent. Being a docent is a great way to learn more about Oberlin and its unique history whether you are new in town or have lived here forever. Take a complimentary tour before the training to see whether docenting is your "cup of tea." This fun and diverse group of all ages and backgrounds meets periodically throughout the year for informational gatherings, field trips, and more. Some docents specialize in tours for adult groups while others especially enjoy children's groups or tours for walk-in visitors.
Talk to Museum Education and Tour Coordinator Liz Schultz (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 440-774-1700) for a free tour ticket for a prospective docent or for more information. Pre-registration is required.
This summer we are also offering a new Junior Docent camp for youth ages 13 to 17 (see details in our Summer Camp feature.
