What is a Docent?
The word “docent” (pronounced doe-sent) is derived from the Latin word docere, meaning ‘to teach’. Docents are trained to act as tour guides for TFA. Docents are essential to the educational mission of TFA. TFA docents are enthusiastic volunteers who share their passion for architecture to help connect tour-goers with the Tulsa community.
Who can Become a TFA Docent?
Anyone with a passion for architecture and a desire to share that passion with others is welcome. There are no educational or professional requirements for becoming a TFA docent. Docents will be trained on everything they need to know. We encourage all who are interested to apply. TFA respects, values, and celebrates the unique attributes, characteristics, and perspectives that make each person who they are. We believe that our chief strength lies in human diversity, both within our organization and among the communities with whom we engage. We seek out diversity of participation, thought, and action, and work affirmatively and strategically to be inclusive. For us, diversity, equity, and inclusion are drivers of organizational excellence.
