Become a Utah State Capitol Tour Guide

The Utah State Capitol Visitors Service program is seeking volunteers to join its dynamic, motivated docent team.

What is a docent?
The word “docent” derives from the Latin word “do oere,” meaning “to teach.” For more than 100 years, docents have been a vital link between the history and collections of public buildings and their visitors.

What does a docent do?
Our docents help visitors learn about the Capitol through guided tours that highlight history, artwork, artifacts, exhibits, and events.

In addition to providing an indispensable service to thousands of Capitol visitors, docents gain the opportunity to meet people from across the U.S. and around the globe. Docents learn the ins and outs of the Capitol community, attending quarterly training workshops and volunteer socials.
