The Docent Education Program offers interested volunteers the opportunity to become an official MAS docent, leading tours of Grand Central Terminal, one New York City’s most beloved landmark buildings. Apply for a five-session course with expert speakers, essential readings, research, and hands-on experience preparing each docent to develop and lead his or her own unique tour. No prior tour guide experience is required.
The program is comparable to a graduate level introduction to the history of New York City. Applicants must be at least 18 years old, be comfortable in front of an audience and have an unquenchable thirst for all things New York City. Certified MAS docents must lead at least 2 tours a month. There is no charge for the course, however trainees are responsible for purchasing the necessary reading material (approx. cost: $30).
Please note that we receive many applications and may not interview all candidates.
