MAD Docent Program
Docents are highly dedicated volunteers who act as frontline educators and interpreters of MAD’s mission and exhibitions. Docents use inquiry-based and dialogue-driven engagement strategies to explain curatorial ideas and help build deeper, more meaningful connections with the public.
All docent candidates participate in a five-month training program. This training program includes eight sessions held at the Museum and individualized training with a docent mentor. Successful completion of a certification tour, which is conducted by the Docent Program Manager, is required for participation in the MAD Docent Program.
We are not currently accepting applications to the Docent Program. If you are interested in becoming a docent in the future, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our outreach list.
If you applied to the 2017 training session, your application is under review. Applicants selected for an interview will be notified by the end of January with their interview time. The 2017 training session begins on March 7, 2017
