BISB Launches New Museum Docent Training Program

March 09, 2015

The British International School of Boston is pleased to announce a new student leadership program in partnership with the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.

In partnership with the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the British International School of Boston, a Boston private school, is launching the inaugural year of what we hope to be an annual Museum Docent Program.

The MFA Docent Program is an amazing opportunity for Boston students to take advantage of one of the world’s greatest cultural institutions:  Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.  As an MFA student docent, BISB students will be trained to lead museum tours based around a specific artefact or other work of art in the museum.

The program will be open to students in Years 2-9, and will help to develop leadership and collaboration skills.

The goal of this program is to enable students to discuss works from the MFA’s collection and relate their experience and knowledge from the museum back to the school community. At a future event in May, the student docents will be available to guide BISB parents and city residents through a part of the Museum of Fine Arts.

Students interested in becoming a museum docent will be expected to commit to and attend three training sessions at the Museum of Fine Arts, on Friday, April 3, 10 and 17 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.  

All students interested in this program will need to complete a written application form (see below) and return it to Mrs. Smith or Ms. Richardson by Friday, March 13. Students will be informed the same day if they have reached the interview phase of the application process, which will take place on Monday, March 30th. This will allow successful applicants to practice and prepare during the two week March vacation.

We look forward to receiving and reviewing applications.
