The Old North Church & Historic Site is interviewing for educators.
Part-time, seasonal positions are available.
300 Years. Two Lanterns. One Revolution.
Built in 1723, the Old North Church is famous for the two signal lanterns hung in its steeple at the instruction of Paul Revere--two lanterns that lit the way to revolution and independence. The Old North Church & Historic Site is a half-acre campus in the heart of Boston’s North End. It includes the iconic church, the colonial-era Clough House where visitors experience “living history”, several gardens and courtyards, and a gift shop. The Old North Foundation manages the site and is dedicated to preserving the site, to sharing its stories, and to exploring the many aspects of active citizenship that Old North has witnessed through its 300 years.
As an educator at Old North you will be part of a close-knit and enthusiastic team committed to providing visitors with an excellent and enjoyable experience. You will welcome visitors from around the world, offer regularly-scheduled talks for groups of 10 to 200, and lead specialty tours and other in-depth educational experiences. You will have additional opportunities to develop special programming and to write for our history and news blogs.
