Docent Training 2019

at La Purisima Mission State Historic Park

Docent Training

Do you love meeting people, learning history, doing demonstrations or working with others? Then you may want to consider becoming a docent at La Purisima Mission State Historic Park. The 8-week volunteer docent training class is from 9:30-1:30 Saturdays from January through March.

This program covers the history of California from the Chumash to the Spanish Missions and into the present. Along with the history you will learn mission era crafts, native flora and fauna and interpretive skills. You will also become part of our volunteer community so it is a great way to make new friends.

We suggest before you sign on the dotted line to come to the docent orientation meeting. This meeting is a noncommittal opportunity for you to find out more about our program, ask questions, have some coffee and snacks and see if this is a good fit for you.
