Docent Training

Bring history to life!
Volunteer to be a Homestead Museum Docent

After filling out an application, our volunteer coordinator will call you to schedule an interview.  Upon completing Volunteer Orientation, you can begin volunteering at special events and assisting with a variety of projects.

The museum is looking for people with a passion for history and community service to join its volunteer staff.  We are especially in need of docents who can lead tours in Spanish or Chinese, and enjoy working with children.  No experience is necessary, and training and materials are free.  The next ten-week training course for docents and museum teachers begins in February 2013 and emphasizes California history between 1830 and 1930, teaching techniques, and the museum's collections through lectures, workshops, and readings.

For more information, call (626) 968-8492, e-mail info@homesteadmuseum.org, or drop by the Homestead at 15415 E. Don Julian Road in the City of Industry.
