Louis Armstrong House Museum Announces First Docent Corps
The Louis Armstrong House Museum is calling on volunteers that are 18-118 years old to join its museum docent-training program.
The volunteer position serves a vital link between the historic house and the museum's visitors by interpreting this extraordinary historic site for them. The museum offers flexible schedules for volunteers who wish to donate 5-35 hours per month as part of the program.
The museum has only 25 spots open in its inaugural class. In addition to membership in the museum's AllStar Docent Corps, benefits include a certificate of recognition of service, free admission for up to four family members to the museum, employee discount in the LAHM shop, invitation for two to LAHM annual holiday party, gift book and Louis Armstrong House museum t-shirt.
Volunteers in the museum's AllStar Corps will guide visitors through the Louis Armstrong House Museum, introduce the orientation film and shape the visitor experience by accompanying guests throughout their time at the museum. Docents will also assist at museum special events and perform light clerical tasks as needed. Bilingual docents are welcome for our international visitors.
Interested candidates should send a cover letter and resume tovolunteer@LouisArmstrongHouse.org by January 21st for the opportunity to be considered as part of the inaugural class of the AllStar Docent Corps.
