Fort Bend County Museum offers volunteer opportunities & training

The New Year brings exciting new opportunities for volunteers to get involved in local history at the Fort Bend County Museum with training classes to prepare them for a variety of ways to lend a helping hand. 

“We are always looking for volunteers to help with an assortment of things at the Museum. These training days are an opportunity for volunteers to get the necessary training required to help with school programs throughout the year and lead tours of the Moore Home and Long-Smith Cottage,” said Jessica Avery, Education Coordinator. 

Schools have already started booking their field trips to the Fort Bend County Museum for the spring semester, and the Museum is in need of volunteers to help with school programs. A training class for current school programs volunteers and anyone who would like to become a school programs volunteer will be held 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, January 22 at the Fort Bend County Museum. Lunch will be provided for trainees.

The Museum is also hosting a training class for volunteers who would like to serve as tour guides in the historic Moore Home and the Long-Smith Cottage. This training is open to experienced Fort Bend County Museum Docents as well as new volunteers. Historic home tour training is set for 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Thursday, January 23 at the Fort Bend County Museum. Lunch will be provided for trainees following the class. 

Anyone who would like to attend either of these volunteer training opportunities at the Fort Bend County Museum should RSVP to Jessica Avery at (281) 342-6478 or  javery@fortbendmuseum.org.
