The Minnesota Marine Art Museum is currently recruiting new volunteer tour guides to apply for a free 8-week training starting in February 2018.
A background in art or museums or previous teaching experience can be helpful, but no previous experience is required to begin the training class. New volunteers will learn about the collections and various touring strategies to use with different audiences.
Applicants must possess an eagerness to learn and a willingness to explore and support differing points of view. Guides are asked to give at least 6 tours a year and attend an ongoing monthly training class.
The museum is offering an information session to learn more about this rewarding volunteer opportunity on Thursday, Nov. 9, from 9 to 10 a.m. Bloedow’s doughnuts and coffee will be served.
Please RSVP (and request your favorite doughnut) by calling 507-474-6626 or emailing email@example.com.
