Do you like anthropology and sharing your interest with others? Do you like working with the public and opening their minds and hearts to world cultures? Then consider volunteering as a docent for the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology!
Docents present traveling trunk programs in local schools and exhibition tours at the museum to school children and other members of the general public.

Training involves attendance at workshops, demonstrations and lectures given by experts in the fields of anthropology and education. We provide instructional resources and mentorship from senior docents. However it is the prospective docent that provides the dedication to study and assimilate the information.
After completing all training sessions, a docent pledges four hours per week for a period of two years.
Local travel is involved. A docent must have access to an automobile.
All docents are obliged to continue growing and learning. The Maxwell Museum offers a number of educational opportunities throughout the year.
Expect to practice, practice, practice!
In addition to the standard volunteer benefits, the teachers appreciate you. But more importantly, the children love you!
