Gadsby’s Tavern Museum’s Junior Docent Program is a wonderful way to encourage their interest and enthusiasm! Students accepted into the Historic Alexandria program are trained in museum information and presentation skills. Then, they provide tours Sunday afternoons during the summer (based on student availability), practicing their speaking skills, and engaging visitors of all ages and sharing their interest in history.
Applications are now being accepted from 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students. To be considered, students must complete the application, available at alexandriava.gov/gadsbystavern and return it to the Museum no later than Friday, March 24.
