Volunteer tour guide and docent

Description:
We are recruiting new volunteers to help us meet the growing demand for our history tours, technology demonstrations, and school programs. Volunteers welcome visitors in the museum, lead tours of the historical highlights of Mass General’s campus and of the historic Ether Dome, and demonstrate our virtual dissection table. Docents typically have one standing two- or three-hour shift per week; must have some flexibility to cover other shifts. Most of the shifts are during M-F 9-5 business hours, with some Saturday shifts. The museum and Ether Dome are wheelchair accessible. You can expect to work with all ages, with tourists and hospital staff and patients, with locals and visitors with limited English. Some days are fast-paced and busy, while other days are quiet. 
Qualifications:
No special background in history, medicine, or science is required – we will train you!  Must be available a minimum of six months. People who are bilingual are especially encouraged to volunteer.
