Blended docent programs?

Hello all –


I’m writing from the Chazen Museum of Art at UW-Madison. I’m wondering if any of you manage blended docent programs? We’re in the early stages of developing a student docent program, but we have also a longstanding docent program of volunteers who are our greatest ambassadors of the Museum. If your museum has both student and adult docents (for lack of a better descriptor), what does the relationship between the two look like? Alternately, have any of you replaced the “traditional” docent program with a student docent program? I realize this is a huge ASK at an incredibly busy time, but if either scenario applies to your institution, I’d love to chat with you to learn more!


Thank you in advance!

Candie Waterloo, Curator of Education
