The National Gallery of Art is recruiting docents to conduct tours in English and other languages. New docents are expected to make a five-year commitment to the program. This includes two years of initial training beginning September 2018. The training program focuses on museum education and art history, in-gallery sessions, lectures and readings. Docents become part of a community of learners and continue their education both formally and informally. Those interested in applying must attend an information meeting. Meetings are on Oct. 3 at 10:30 a.m.; Oct. 19 at 2:30 p.m.; Nov. 7 at 12:30 p.m.; Nov. 13 at 1 p.m.; and Dec. 6 at 12:30 p.m. Register at nga.gov.
