There are loads of “only in DC” opportunities we benefit from as Hill residents:  watching July 4th fireworks from the roof of your house (on the Mall, in PG County, and in the middle of the your street too), walking/jogging/biking through the Capitol grounds as part of your daily routine, and having Members of Congress as neighbors.  Well, here’s another “only in DC” opportunity.  From our neighbors at the Supreme Court:

“Are you interested in government, history, and architecture? Do you enjoy working with the public or teaching? Then consider applying to be a docent in the Curator’s Office at the Supreme Court. We are recruiting qualified volunteers to conduct public programs, lead tours, and staff an information desk. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age, be comfortable speaking to large groups of people of all ages and backgrounds, and be willing to commit to one 3 hour shift per week (M-F) for one year. All new docents must attend 25 hours of mandatory training in late February. Individuals with Spanish language skills are encouraged to apply.

“Top candidates will be invited to interview with the Visitor Programs staff. Final selection is subject to successful completion of a security background check. Applications for the February training are being accepted through January 20th, 2012. For more information, please call (202) 479-3298 to request an application, or visit the Supreme Court’s Website at: http://www.supremecourt.gov/jobs/docentprogram.pdf
