Event Description: The Volunteer Guides Program has been in place nearly as long as Vizcaya has served as a public museum. It began in 1954 as an independent volunteer group and is currently among the most sophisticated docent training programs in the county, offering an extensive 30-hour certification covering learning theory and local history as well as a mentoring component partnering newcomers with veteran guides.

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is seeking volunteers to lead guided interactive tours for its visitors. An information reception for anyone interested in becoming a Volunteer Guide is taking place on Thursday, February 9, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. in the Courtyard of the Main House. RSVP is required by February 6th. RSVPs can be submitted online via Eventbrite. You can also download the Volunteer Guide application form and submit it by the given deadline via email to volunteerguides@vizcaya.org or by fax to 305-285-2004. 

Vizcaya's Volunteer Guides have been offering guided tours to the public since 1954. Now is an exciting time to become a Guide as we celebrate Vizcaya's Centennial. For more information, please contact Guiding Programs Manager at mark.osterman@vizcaya.org
