Docent Orientation Classes 2018

The NHS Docent Council is the volunteer organization which, for the past 35 years, has supported the mission and activities of the NHS.

We are seeking volunteers for our Museum Store and Educational Tour Guides.

Museum Store: Work in a customer service environment, greet and direct museum visitors, ring up sales for admission and store purchases, assist with basic data entry, records, mail, and help with store projects.

Educational Tour Guides: After shadowing our educational docents you will become familiar with the galleries; Native Americans, Fur Trappers, Mining, Transportation, Pioneers, and Early Reno.

You will learn about the many fascinating artifacts throughout the museum and how to engage adults & children as they explore the galleries.

Please visit our website to fill out the NHS Volunteer Application. It is located under the Requests tab or click on the link: NHS Volunteer Application
