Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Newseum! We are currently recruiting for volunteer guides to provide three types of tours to our visitors. Guides are enthusiastic life-learners who engage our visitors about the museum’s content and its mission to champion the First Amendment. They are trained to conduct the following tours:
These tours are structured to allow guides the flexibility to design informative tours around their particular interests while still meeting the needs/interests of their audiences.
Volunteers must complete an intensive training program which includes 40 hours of class time in addition to assignments to be completed at home (approximately an additional 30 hours). While demanding, the training process – with its focus on content and presentation skills – is essential to the success of our guides.
Newseum volunteers enjoy these benefits:
