Become a Florida Holocaust Museum Docent

The Florida Holocaust Museum is currently recruiting new docents. Individuals must be able to commit to a seven-week training course.

 
Prospective docents will be taught the history of antisemitism, the Holocaust and post World War II genocides in order to give guided tours. Training classes will take place September 19, 2011 through November 21, 2011, on Mondays and Thursdays from 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. No prior background in Holocaust education or history is needed. 
 
An in-depth history course including documentary footage and photographs will be provided. Participants will meet with Holocaust survivors, learning their stories through first hand accounts, in order to pass on the message to Museum visitors. With the help of experienced docents, class participants will learn how to interact with students and work with the core exhibit and art exhibitions.
 
Working as a docent is a truly rewarding experience. Through fulfilling the mission of the Museum, docents help make the world a better place. 
 
Candidates interested in taking the class should contact Urszula Szczepinska, Curator of Education and Director of Research by Sept. 13, 2011, (727) 820 – 0100, ext. 241.
