Description: School tour docents are critical to the Society’s mission to support education by providing high quality programs for children in grades K-12. These docents have the opportunity to share a variety of topics and work with the Society’s new hands-on curriculum-based programming.

Training: In addition to being trained in the walking and maritime tours, school tour docents also receive special training in working with children in grades K-12 as well as in the delivery of the new hands-on curriculum-based programs. Trainings will occur on a regular basis and attendance is required to ensure the Society is meeting its educational objectives.

Why this position is important: School Tour Docents are students’ primary interaction with the Society and its collections. These docents are able to enrich the educational experiences that students will have on site and can help students to comprehend and learn about Lewes History.
