Become a Docent at The Ringling!
Docents at The Ringling love to learn and love sharing what they have learned by engaging visitors in active discussions about the museum’s collection. We are seeking individuals for our next Docent training opportunity, which will be March 2020 – February 2021 and will be focused on the Museum of Art.
Concerned that you know very little about art, history, or museums in general? Not to worry! The training course is comprehensive and includes extensive content-based lectures as well as training on effective touring techniques. If you are interested in helping us preserve and share the Ringling legacy, we encourage you to apply!
To hear more about this and other volunteer opportunities within the Education Department, we invite you to attend an upcoming informational session where staff will explain our application process and training in more detail:
- September 17, 2019, 10:30 AM
- September 24, 2019, 3:00 PM
Both sessions will be conducted in the downstairs classrooms of the Johnson-Blalock Education Center. Please park in our main parking lot and walk or take a tram to the Education Center. More information on the docent program is available on our Docent page.
