    Interested in history, architecture, or decorative arts? Become a tour guide at Evergreen Museum & Library! Volunteer docents at Evergreen lead engaging and interactive tours to a variety of individuals, school groups and community organizations from around the world. Docents also assist with the museum’s special programs and foster an appreciation for art, architecture and history in visitors of all ages.

    Coomunity members who are accepted into the program are required to complete the museum's 4-week Docent Training Course. Volunteers who successfully complete the training will be expected to commit to working a minimum of four hours per month. Docents are needed on weekends and/or weekdays, and schedules can be created to suit your needs and availability.

    Evergreen's volunteers join the intellectual life at Johns Hopkins University, with opportunities for additional training, and are invited to social events, openings, lectures, and tours of other historic sites.
