Fairfield Museum seeks volunteer docents

The Fairfield Museum & History Center is seeking locals who are interested in history and working with people to become involved in its Docent program. Docents lead tours at the Fairfield Museum and at Ogden House, and also volunteer assistance at programs, attend lectures presented by scholars, and participate in teacher workshops.

“This is a great time to get involved with the Fairfield Museum,” said Director of Education Christine Jewell. “Whether you’ve lived here for many years or you are new to the area, discover the rewards of sharing the rich history of our town and region to students, families and adults!”

Adults who want to get involved should attend a Docent Training Session on either Wednesday, Feb. 14 or Wednesday, Feb. 21, from 10-noon. The session will cover teaching with primary sources, general Fairfield history and docent policies. Docent training is both intellectually stimulating and socially rewarding and includes readings and discussions on various topics in American history and history education.

Program & Volunteer Coordinator, Walter Matis, will be at the Fairfield Public Library’s “Volunteer Fair” on Thursday, Feb. 1, from 2-4 p.m. to answer questions and share more information about volunteering with the Museum.

If you are interested in attending a Docent Training Session, RSVP to Christine Jewell at 203-259-1598 or email [email protected]
