Tour Guide Training Program

Fridays 1:30-3:30pm March 28, April 4, 11, 18 and 25

Enjoy working with children? Interested in sharing your enthusiasm about history and culture? Touchstones Nelson if offering a volunteer tour guide training program over five Friday afternoons from March 28th to April 25th.

Through the training, participants will learn to facilitate interactive tours and hands-on activities with groups of school-aged children and adults. Topics include  group facilitation skills, techniques for encouraging observation and inquiry, and how to use artifacts as learning tools. After the training, new tour guides will shadow with more experienced ones until they are ready to take more of a leadership role. A criminal record check is required at the end of the training.

To apply, please send a letter of interest and resume to Jessica Demers:
