Looking for a new and exciting way to volunteer? JPPM is recruiting docents for our 2016 class. We are seeking a great group of people to work with our school groups, Maryland Archaeological Conservation Lab, Exhibit Barn, Patterson House, and more. This is an opportunity to meet new people, make new friends, and interact with the archaeologists,
educators, and historians who bring Southern Maryland’s past to life!
The intensive ten week training course will provide you with in depth knowledge of the archaeology, history, and culture of southern Maryland with a specific focus on the land where JPPM sits today. You will also examine techniques and education strategies for engaging museum visitors in meaningful explorations of the past. After completing the initial training course, JPPM docents further the educational mission of the Park by offering regular, high-quality interpretive services for the public in support of annual programs, workshops, exhibits, and so much more.
