We are looking for volunteers to fill a variety of positions on an as-needed basis. As a docent, you can lead tours, bring a historical figure to life, or spark a child's imagination with historic artifacts. At the meeting, you will have the opportunity to meet our staff, get details about the positions available, see living history and hands-on demonstrations, and learn about training requirements and scheduling needs.

Being a docent is a great way to engage in your community, learn more about local history, and support history education for our youth. The Willamette Heritage Center hosts over 3,000 students a year from all over the state, and we can't wait for you to join us in spreading a love of history to each of them.

Optional museum tour will be offered after the meeting (2:00 pm - 3:00 pm).
