The Ohio Statehouse Museum Education Center (OSMEC) is seeking enthusiastic volunteers to participate in its volunteer program. The OSMEC serves nearly 80,000 visitors a year from across the state, country and globe. Volunteers are sought to guide tour groups, including school children, through the Ohio Statehouse and the Ohio Statehouse Museum. Other volunteer opportunities include historical interpreters, museum shop assistants and program assistants.
Volunteers will receive training about tour and museum content, the history and architecture of the Ohio Capitol, as well as the workings of state government. Training will also cover the most effective way to relate information in an interesting and engaging manner to a wide variety of audiences. Volunteers do not receive financial compensation, but they are offered discounts in the statehouse museum shop, free parking and other benefits.
