The Portland’s History Docents Program (PHD) is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary this year! Please join us for this special year, and receive knowledge, experience, and friendships that last a lifetime.
The PHD program is a collaborative effort by:
- Maine Historical Society
- Greater Portland Landmarks
- Tate House Museum
- Victoria Mansion
- Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad and Museum
- Fifth Maine Regiment Museum
- Eastern Cemetery
Each spring, these organizations join forces to provide a nine-week training program for new prospective volunteer guides at each organization’s respective museum site. Several weeks of lively and informative talks and presentations take place at MHS, combined with site visits to each partnering organization.
Upon graduation, PHD participants become eligible to volunteer at the site(s) of their choice, and training at those sites is scheduled on an individual basis. Graduates are asked to commit to a year of volunteer time. At MHS, docents provide tours of the Wadsworth-Longfellow House, conduct the Old Port Walking Tour, assist with school groups, and work in other aspects of MHS operations.
When: Every Thursday mornings from 9:00am – 12:00pm; March 5 – April 30, 2015.
Cost: $30, or $20 with a valid student I.D.
