Docent Training Program

The Whitney Museum is now accepting applications for a new docent training program which will begin in spring 2014. Applicants should be articulate, intelligent, and motivated people who are willing to make a long-term commitment to the Whitney community and share their enthusiasm for art in a serious and thoughtful way.

Whitney docents volunteer their time, and come from a range of backgrounds. Current docents include recent college graduates, working professionals, retirees, artists, collectors, stay-at-home parents and college professors. You can be a docent even if you work during the day as training sessions and tours will be planned both days and evenings. People living near the Whitney’s new location in downtown Manhattan are particularly encouraged to apply.

Fluency in one or more foreign languages is a plus
Expertise in museum education and in modern or American art history is a plus, but not a prerequisite
