Volunteer with the Swope

Become a Docent 

What is a docent? A docent is a knowledgeable guide who leads visitors through a museum or art gallery.

At the Swope, we offer an opportunity for volunteers to become docents and give guided tours to our visitors. While we mainly use our docents during the month of May when we bring every 5th-grade class in Vigo County to the Swope for a tour, there are other opportunities throughout the year to bring a variety of different groups through the museum. Join us in sharing the joy of art with our community!

The Swope offers a variety of volunteer opportunities that cater to different interests and skills. Whether you're passionate about working with youth, have a knack for data input and record keeping, enjoy event planning and outreach, or have an eye for artwork installation, we have a role for you.
