Call Out for Volunteers at State Indian Museum This Fall!

For the upcoming fall season, the State Indian Museum needs positive and enthusiastic community volunteers to embark on an exciting and educational journey as State Park docents. The State Indian Museum is located on the grounds of Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park.  Applications are now being accepted for volunteer positions and comprehensive training is provided.  Interested volunteers must apply and be interviewed in advance. Once selected, the qualified applicants will participate in a seven-week training series that begins in October.

A background in Native California culture is not required and a variety of volunteer positions are currently available, both on weekdays and weekends.  Volunteer docents will have the opportunity to learn about and share the fascinating California Native history with Museum visitors.  Docent training at the State Indian Museum includes a comprehensive look at the enduring California Native culture as well as in-depth study of the art of interpretation.

All training is free to qualified applicants and there are many benefits to the rewarding experience, including a Capital District State Museums and Historic Parks pass for volunteers who complete 84 hours annually and a State-wide Parks pass for volunteers who complete 200 hours or more each year.

The deadline to apply to become a volunteer docent at the State Indian Museum is September 18.  To download a volunteer application, go to www.parks.ca.gov/CapitalDistrict or call Volunteer Coordinator 916-324-8112 for more information.
