Dance demonstrations will be featured at ¡Celebratión!

As the N.C. Museum of History gears up for some great September programs celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month, it’s asking for your help. The museum has a special need for bilingual volunteers on both a short-term and long-term basis.

In the shorter term, the Museum needs bilingual volunteers to help with its ¡Celebratión! event on Saturday, September 29, 2012 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. The event will feature music and dance performances, cooking and craft demonstrations, hands-on activities for children and much more. Volunteers are needed to help with the craft activities and to assist visitors and presenters.

In the longer term, the Museum of History is looking for people to serve as docents, or tour guides, on a regular basis. Training classes will begin on Monday, September 17, and be taught weekly through November. Sessions will be offered Mondays from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., and will cover North Carolina history, communication skills and teaching and tour techniques.

An online training will also be offered for those who work during the day and want to volunteer on weekends. Docents are asked to make a one-year commitment of at least two hours per week to the Museum.

If you’re interested in either opportunity, contact Debra Nichols at debra.nichols@ncdcr.gov or (919) 807-7986. Thanks in advance for your help!
