Lyman Allyn Art Museum in New London is seeking enthusiastic individuals interested in art, art history, American history, and public relations to join our Volunteer Docent Program. Docents play an important role in leading museum tours for children and adults, greeting the public, and engaging visitors in hands-on art activities.
All new docents will receive extensive training in New London, regional, and the Museum’s history, our permanent and special exhibitions, as well as a foundation for leading tours for all ages. To ensure that both the Museum and docents make the most of the training, we ask for a two (2) year commitment, attendance in bi-monthly meetings from September through June, and a minimum of 12 hours of service each year. All active docents will be eligible for Docent Benefits. Bi-lingual, especially Spanish, is a plus but is not required. A history with art, children and/or the public is a bonus.
