We are pleased to announce another Student-docent Training Workshop at the Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies located on 758 North Pleasant Street, Amherst 01002. This workshop will be held on Wednesday, March 26th from 3:00-4:00, and is offered to high school and university students. Students who are interested in attending will learn how to lead their student peers through the Institute’s permanent Holocaust teaching exhibition, “A Reason to Remember: Roth, Germany, 1933-1942." This workshop will introduce students to the exhibition and its origins, and encourage discussion about the exhibition and its message. We hope that the worksop will encourage further study and training in order to become student tour facilitators.
Upon finishing the session, students will receive a certificate of completion and an invitation to bring their classes and teachers back to the Institute for a tour. Students who earn the certificate should contact their school administrators about receiving credit toward community service. The training can also be a unique addition to the college applications of high school students.
This workshop is free of charge, and light refreshments will be served. For inquiries and registration, please call 413.835.0221 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you will join us!
