The Bruce Museum is seeking new docents to join its team of knowledgeable and friendly volunteers who conduct guided tours of the Museum’s diverse art and science exhibitions and educational programs.

“Docents perform an essential task for the Museum, each year leading over 500 tours and programs for groups of adults and schoolchildren and serving as Museum ambassadors to the public,” says Kathleen Holko, Manager of School & Tour Services at the Bruce. “We would not be able to carry out the level of programming we do without them.”

An orientation session for new docents is scheduled for Friday, September 7, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm at the Bruce. This year, the Museum is seeking volunteers specifically interested in working with children and family audiences, who comprise an ever-growing percentage of museum visitors.

To request a docent application, please contact Kathleen Holko at kholko@brucemuseum.org or 203-413-6741 by August 24.
