Our weekday group tour facilitators share the Japanese American story with our diverse audience of students in grades 1-12. They facilitate interactive school group experiences of our core exhibition Common Ground: The Heart of Community and, alongside our Origami Docents, craft with students one of the Museum’s four designated origami pieces.

Prior experience is not needed. You will receive knowledge in classroom settings and through active learning. Familiarity with Japanese American history is a plus but not required. On-going learning opportunities are available through volunteer and staff led sessions, JANM public programs, and online resources.

Facilitators are needed for morning hour shifts of 4 hours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. An annual average of eight volunteer hours per month (96 hours per calendar year) is requested.
