Museum guides, also called docents, give presentations about the museum’s exhibits and provide general information and guest services to museum visitors. Applicants must be members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and willing to make a three year commitment to the museum.
Those interested should call 801-240-9573 as soon as possible for application information. The application deadline is Friday, Oct. 21, 2011.
Interviews will be conducted and selections made based on an applicant’s qualifications, interests, and availability. Those accepted will receive callings as part-time Church Service Missionaries.
Church History Museum guides serve four to six hours a week and are assigned a regular morning, afternoon, or evening shift Monday through Saturday based on availability. Saturday docents serve every other week. “Many of our evening and Saturday docents have full-time jobs. They are very dedicated people who love serving in the museum,” said Nancy Andersen, the museum’s docent coordinator.
Training classes are held once a week starting in January 2012 and will run through May 2012.
