The Kelsey Museum of Archaeology is recruiting a new volunteer docent class. We will be hosting a Docent Recruitment Open House on Tuesday, April 25, from 1:00 to 2:30 PM, where our Education staff will provide information about becoming a docent and answer any questions you may have.
Kelsey Museum docents are community members who have completed training in museum education techniques and mastered content related to the Kelsey collections from Greece, Rome, Egypt, and the Middle East. Serving as a vital connection to the museum, they lead tours and present related activities to K-12 field trip groups, families, community groups, and University of Michigan students. These tours educate, engage, and further the Kelsey's mission and vision. Docents are ambassadors in the community and are an important part of the Kelsey team.
There are many benefits to becoming a Kelsey Museum docent. Docents receive extensive training in museum education techniques, gain check-out privileges and access to online journals and databases at U-M libraries, and can audit selected U-M classes that relate to the Kelsey's collections and research. Visit our docent information page to learn about other benefits of becoming a Kelsey docent.
