Junior Docent Volunteer at Historic Stewart Farm

Junior Docent at Historic Stewart Farm

 

 

 

Step back in time and volunteer at Historic Stewart Farm in South Surrey.  Have fun while learning about leadership, team work and local history.

 

Junior Docent sounds like a fancy term but it simply means you help out with weekend events and spring and summer day camps. Make ice cream, lead old-fashioned games and do heritage house tours. All after some training of course!  We also provide costumes so you look the part.

 

You must be at least 14 years of age for this position.  Weekend and spring and summer break opportunities are available.

 

If you want a reference letter from a top employer and have fun with new friends while volunteering, please fill out the application form. For more information, email heritagevolunteers@surrey.ca or call 604-502-6461.
