with Historic Denver & Molly Brown House Museum
Historic Denver, Inc. has been hosting the Walking Tour Program for four years.
Each year we continue to grow our docent team and we need you! We are looking for up to 20 passionate volunteer docents this year to join the team in leading walking tours. Is this opportunity for you?
Are you passionate about Denver and its history?
Do you have some knowledge of local history and architecture?
Do people often describe you as friendly?
Do you like engaging with people from all over the world?
Do you like to get outside and walk the streets of Denver?
Upon passing the initial interview, individuals will be notified of acceptance into the program. Accepted Volunteer Docents are required to commit and successfully complete 5-Saturday’s of intensive training courses, which will make you an expert in all things Denver! This training course will include expert speakers, fieldwork, hands-on activities and even a bit of homework! Training’s are held on Saturdays at the end of January through early March.
The Walking Tours are 85-90 minutes long and will take place rain, shine or snow. The regular season of tours are held from May 1 through October 31 and volunteer docents must be able to commit to at least 2 tours (3 hours) of guiding each month, as well as transportation time for each commitment.
Your name will be saved into our system and we will reach out to you at the end of 2017 for a potential 2018 docent interview.
