Shelton Historical Society to offer free volunteer training in April

The Shelton Historical Society will offer training sessions for volunteer museum educators on three Saturdays in April at the Shelton History Center, 70 Ripton Road.

The society is seeking volunteers interested in serving as museum educators or tour guides at its Shelton History Center. Training is free and open to anyone willing to volunteer at the center by sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm. No experience is necessary.

Shelton history, museum teaching techniques, and communication skills will be some of the topics covered. Each week's session will build on previous lessons.

The Sunday sessions will take place April 7, 14 and 28 from 1 to 3 p.m. Call 203-925-1803 to register.
