The San Joaquin County Historical Society and Museum also hosts work projects for undergrad studies. The Museum Docent program is an instructional division where interested adults can take a one year course in neighborhood history and training. When graduated, docents serve as volunteer teachers for the exhibitions. Each docent is assigned through the Docent Council. This is a program that helps generate the support needed for the Museum.
