Becoming a Docent
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Docent with the Arab American National Museum (AANM). We are always looking for passionate, responsible, and engaging docents to be apart of our team. Becoming a Docent with the AANM is more than just guiding groups on a tour of our museum. It is passionately and accurately telling stories and delivering information about Arab Americans, engaging with all of our visitors, dispelling stereotypes of Arab Americans, and making sure all visitors walk away with an understanding of what the AANM stands for and who Arab Americans are.

The AANM's mission is to document, present , and preserve the history, culture, and contributions of Arab Americans.

The AANM staff will provide all training materials and tools to successfully train docents who make it into the program. All docents must go through an intense five to six week training course and complete additional readings, trainings, and assignments. Docents must be comfortable working with and engaging with the public, which includes K-12, college, professionals, special needs, and seniors.

Complete the form below and we will contact you shortly. If you have any questions, please contact Dave Serio, Docent Coordinator at 313-624-0239 or dserio@accesscommunity.org
