Here’s what you can do to help. . .
A docent is a volunteer that is trained to further the public’s understanding of the cultural and historical collections of the institution by providing tours of the museum and providing clerical support as needed.
The Riley Museum utilizes its exhibits, publications and museum education programs to provide greater awareness and appreciation for the vast contributions of African Americans to Florida’s history and to reinforce the fact that Black History is American History.
Volunteer docents allow the museum’s mission to be accomplished by not only presenting the history of Mr. John G. Riley, but the surrounding community as well. Docents conduct individual and group tours that explore Tallahassee’s past, present and future in the context of Mr. Riley’s enduring legacy.
Other ways of supporting the work of the Riley Museum include providing in-kind professional support through the donation of time (for special events), services (for museum up-keep and enhancement) as well as the donation of space (for use in decreasing the cost of hosting one of our signature events).
