Junior Docent Program Recommendation Form
This student is applying to participate in the Hudson River Museum's Junior Docent Program. Junior Docents are high school students who train to work with Museum visitors as gallery guides, workshop leaders, and general ambassadors of the Museum. They meet curators and artists, visit other museums in connection with current HRM exhibits and collections, and use museum resources to create tours and workshops for peers and families. The program aims to enhance students’ appreciation of art and culture; to connect them to the community; to enable them to practice communication and professional skills; and to increase their job-readiness by allowing them to work towards becoming Museum employees. To prepare for college, Junior Docents make trips to college campuses and receive college preparation study. The Junior Docent Program strives to foster peer mentoring and a sense of camaraderie among students, and to create an atmosphere which will encourage them to learn from each other as well as from the Museum’s staff and collections. In order to apply for the Junior Docent Program, we ask that students obtain a letter of recommendation from a teacher, mentor or guidance counselor. Please note that academic merit is not a consideration for application. Please fill out this form in support of the student's application. Please note this program should not be used for short-term community service hours. The Junior Docent program is a multi-year program that requires a commitment of 1 day a week and 1 weekend day a month. Thank you for taking the time to recommend this student!
