Shift Captains

Shift Captains are the lead volunteer for their shift. They are provided with contact information for MHS staff and site staff to communicate as necessary throughout the tour, are asked to arrive 15 minutes before their shift, introduce themselves to the other volunteers and site staff upon arrival, and connect with the other shift captain before departure/upon arrival at their assigned shift. Shift captains also track the number of people who come to the site on the day of the tour, record that information, and let Maine Historical Society know that information at the end of the day.

Are you interested in being a shift captain?

* We appreciate your interest in being a Shift Captain, and hope to be able to accommodate all interested parties.

All volunteers will be given a complimentary ticket to the Magical History Tour on Saturday in exchange for their time and talent! Thank you again for your support.
