We have a number of volunteer opportunities available - below are some common questions and answers.
What types of volunteer or docent opportunities are available?
- Walking Docent
A Walking Docent is an ambassador for Tumamoc who engages with other Hill Walkers during times that the road is open for recreational walking. A Walking Docent educates fellow walkers about the research history of Tumamoc, ongoing research, the archaeology of Tumamoc, and Outreach efforts. Walking Docents attend training sessions in a specific subject matter, and then are able to communicate to other Hill Walkers. Friendly and willingness to learn is a must!
- Citizen-Science Volunteer
- Driver for Outreach Events
Citizen-Science Volunteers assist in Tumamoc's K-12 Citizen-Science program. Classes are taught in ecology, geology, archaeology, to name a few, to K-12 students who visit Tumamoc for these field classes. Friendly and willingness to learn and engage with children is a must!
Drivers are needed for various Outreach events, such as the Tumamoc Lecture Series (a lecture held monthly at Tumamoc) and the Tumamoc's K-12 Citizen-Science field classes. HOV training is required through UA.
Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer needs to fill out a Volunteer Form. This form is available to online, to download and print, or at the front desk at Tumamoc. After you complete and submit the volunteer information sheet you will be contacted and invited to attend a volunteer information meeting. You will get to meet other people interested in volunteering, find out more about the volunteer program, and talk with staff about volunteer opportunities and discuss the best fit between Tumamoc's needs and your interest and availability.
Scheduling your volunteer orientation and/or training will occur after you have accepted a volunteer position. We will contact you to make these arrangements.
