Volunteer Tour Guide Training (Month of May)

Month of May: Tour guide Training. In preparation for our summer house tours, we invite anyone interested in leading tours to attend the following training sessions.  Tour Guides are important ambassadors for the DRHS and a crucial element in allowing DRHS to meet its mission.

  • May 6, 10-11:30 am – General Duxbury History, Native American to present day. Drew Archives, 147 St. George St.
  • May 13, 10 -11:30 am – King Caesar House Tour by Carolyn Ravenscroft, 120 King Caesar Road.
  • May 20, 10-11:30 am – Bradford House Tour by Erin McGough, 931 Tremont Street.
  • Week of May 25 – Peer-to-Peer Practice Tours, by appointment. A chance to give a low-pressure practice tour to a fellow tour guide!

Some working information:

  1. Tour Guides may work at one or both houses. Please contact us for more information on deciding which house is best for you.
  2. Tour Guides may work only a few hours over the course of the whole season, or they may keep a regular weekly schedule – any and all contributions are welcome.
  3. You don’t have to know everything up front! We welcome you as this is a great ongoing, learning experience that will grow with you over time.
  4. While attendance at all training sessions is strongly encourage, inability to attend one or more does not disqualify you – if you’d really like to be a tour guide, let us know and we will arrange to get you the training.
  5. What we do require: a sense of responsibility to the job and a willingness to warmly welcome visitors and share your enthusiasm for the DRHS and for Duxbury!

If interested in learning more or signing up for training, please email Outreach Manager Sabrina Kaplan for more information: skaplan@duxburyhistory.org.

Thank you for your interest.
