Docent Information Session

December 11, 2017 • 12:00 - 1:30 pm

Are you interested in history?

Are you interested in teaching the lessons of the Holocaust? Do you believe education is an important component in preventing future genocides and acts of hatred?

If so, consider becoming a docent at the new Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education at Rockland Community College. We are looking for volunteers to join us in our mission to educate and inspire change in our community. Docents will serve as tour guides and program assistants to a diverse population of students and individuals in our area.

Join us as we build our new museum!

Volunteers should have an enthusiastic desire to provide an interactive, thoughtful, and educational experience for visitors. Docents will be asked to lead tours and teach lessons about the Holocaust to groups visiting the Museum based upon availability and need. We are currently recruiting new docents and re-training previous volunteers based upon the Museum's new construction and content.

Lunch will be served.

For questions about the program, and to RSVP to the informational session, please email Abigail Miller at amiller@holocauststudies.org.
