Volunteer needs at Sikes are vast and varied! Learn more about the different ways you can contribute your skills towards the preservation and interpretation of this great historic museum.
For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (858) 674-2275 x18 to discuss volunteer opportunities.
Trainees learn about the architectural history of the house, the history of the Sikes family, and the agricultural history of the late 1800s. They also learn tips and techniques for being a docent, and theory of interpretation. In return, trainees commit to leading docent tours for the public. Docents help convey what the pioneer farm experience in Southern California was like, using the Sikes Adobe Farmhouse as the stage. All training sessions for new docents will be held at the Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead.
Schedule includes a 2-hour orientation followed by three 2-hour training sessions. No dates are currently scheduled. Attendance at one of the two orientations is required. Training sessions will focus on Sikes farmhouse history, the Sikes family, and pioneer farming history. In addition, we are looking for folks who have particular skills or are willing to learn the following skills: Carpenters, Quilters, Gardeners, Bakers, Brick-layers, Embroiderers, Musicians, Farmers, Artists, and Ropers!
