Become a Volunteer Leader at the Museum of East Texas

Going on field trips in elementary school was always a hoot because it meant not bustin’ open the textbook for half a day.  Still remember going to the rock quarry and learning about geological formations — when Marcel, the school bully, wasn’t pouncing on me just for fun.

Our classes also took in the La Brea Tar Pits, one of my least favorite sites – the city dump, and one of my personal favorites – the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles.

Now, before I ever stepped foot inside a museum at the tender age of 11, I readily admit my enthusiasm waned.  But, after taking the guided tour, I was easily sold on the presentation of its occupants.

Whether its watching a child stare at a Tyrannosaurus Rex, or perching precariously at a life like replica of a saber tooth tiger, it’s the backstory that illicits the “oohs” and “aahs”.

You don’t need to be an historian to volunteer at the Museum of East Texas.  If you can communicate excitement through the art of storytelling, there is a future for you.  Being selected as a docent (a lecturer or tour guide) means that you will be shaping the minds of children, that may one day become the leaders of America.

Got some extra time that doesn’t conflict from the time clock you are currently punching?  Call 936.639.4434 if you are interested in learning more about this program.
