Volunteer for the Tour
The Tour cannot take place without a very large number of docents.
Our docents guide tour-goers through the homes, point out and explain interesting features, answer questions, and more. It is a great opportunity to work with neighbors old and new, and for high-school and college students to get community service hours. Docents are given a script to guide them at the beginning of their shift so there's no pressure to memorize or have particular expertise. Ticket takers check tourgoers in at each home and help others purchase admission.
Docents get a free ticket to the Tour to use outside of their shifts!
Two House Managers are responsible for each home over the course of the Tour and share responsibility between the two. House managers are the Tour Committee's and Home Owner's point of contact, they help manage the home's docents, answer questions, and more.
All serving as House Managers are given Tour tickets, and also included in all Tour-related events, including our fantastic Druid Hills Gala at Callanwolde on 4/24!
The Druid Hills Civic Association has a committee dedicated to organizing and running the Historic Druid Hills Home & Garden Tour each year.
We have several leadership roles and committee members who offer help with tasks, provide input, and more. All serving on our committee are given Tour tickets, and Tour leaders are also included in all Tour-related events, including our fantastic Druid Hills Gala at Callanwolde!
While we have our leadership roles set for 2024, we can always use extra help! We also welcome leadership candidates to apply for a role in 2025
