Interested in Holocaust education and history? Want to get involved at the Museum on a deeper level?
We need Docents!
***If you enjoy history then join our Docent/Gallery Educator Program.
***If you believe that human beings are doomed to repeat the past if we don't understand our history...
***If you think about the horrors of the Holocaust and ask yourself, "How it could happen? Or, could this happen again?
You should be a docent.
Our program is designed to introduce volunteers to Holocaust history as it is presented in the Museum’s permanent exhibit, along with history and museum educational methodology. Our goal: to develop a team of docents and gallery educators for our core exhibit with special training for our rotating Exhibit Gallery throughout the year. The course offers a solid foundation in policies, procedures, and touring techniques. Various lecturers will address topics on the Museum and educational methodology.
The Dallas Holocaust Museum is dedicated to providing an engaging, fulfilling volunteer program. We strive to create a unique experience for each volunteer based on schedule, interests and skills. *
