Docent Training

Tour Guide Training


Docent/Guide training will begin with an introduction to the Hagen History Center docent program and the exciting new exhibits.

Attendees will be given an in-depth tour of HHC, written materials on the history of the buildings and exhibits on our campus, as well as engaging stories about the people featured in the exhibits.

All will receive a docent/guide shirt, name tag and lanyard and a free membership to the HHC. After training is completed, all candidates will conduct a mock tour with the Museum Educator and upon satisfactorily completing this shall be considered an active docent/guide.

Docents/guides should be willing and physically able to stand for extended periods and be able to climb stairs.

If you are interested in becoming a docent or volunteering with Hagen History Center, please call Jeff Sherry, (814)454-1813 x 33 or email jsherry@eriehistory.org 

Training will be held in person with limited number of attendees per session to adhere to social distancing practices.
