Enjoy working with children? Interested in sharing your enthusiasm about history and culture? Touchstones Nelson if offering a volunteer tour guide training program over five Friday afternoons from March 28 to April 25.
Through the training, participants will learn to facilitate interactive tours and hands-on activities with groups of school-aged children and adults.
Topics include group facilitation skills, techniques for encouraging observation and inquiry, and how to use artifacts as learning tools.
After the training, new tour guides will shadow with more experienced ones until they are ready to take more of a leadership role.
A criminal record check is required. The training sessions will run from 1:30 to 3:30 on Friday afternoons from March 28 to April 25. E-mail Jessica Demers for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
