Upcoming Docent Training Sessions!
Want to share your passion for history with others while honing your public speaking skills? Become a docent with the Brevard Museum! Docent training sessions will be held from 10 am – 12 pm Friday, February 16th and Saturday, February 17th. Please submit a cover letter and application to email@example.com by Wednesday, the 14th and include which session you would like to attend.
At the Brevard Museum of History and Natural Science, it is our goal to educate and excite our visitors about the history of Brevard County. Volunteers like you make this possible by playing an integral role in the preservation and presentation of our shared history!
We want our visitors to leave the museum confident that they have learned something new from us about Brevard County’s Pleistocene Megafauna, Archaic Native Americans, diverse sea life, and, of course, the settlers who built up our towns through the industries of railroads, banks, turpentine, and orange groves.
The Brevard Museum has a number of engaging opportunities for you to chose to work based on your own interests and the skills you would like to use or develop. If you’ve got a talent we’d like to know!
You can strengthen your public speaking skills by leading group tours, and by learning to operate a cash register while greeting and admitting guests.
Other opportunities include:
answering and directing phone calls, researching artifacts and exhibits, performing data entry, sorting and filing documents, cataloguing collections, and more.
Shifts are a flexible 3.5 hours Thursday through Saturday from 10 am - 1:30 pm and 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
