Volunteer as a Lakewood Tour Guide
The new Lakewood tour guides will engage and educate Lakewood visitors during 60–90-minute guided tours of the grounds. These tours will cover Lakewood’s history, architecture and notable residents, along with local history and cemetery history. Guides will also promote and discuss current Lakewood offerings and events as well as provide additional resources, like connecting with Lakewood staff when needed.
This unique, flexible volunteer opportunity offers the chance to learn more about local history, connect with the community, and gain unique insights into death, dying, memorialization and the importance of cemeteries as sacred spaces for education and storytelling.
Guides must complete a 4-hour training session on Saturday, August 12 from 9 AM – noon, and an additional 2-hour group practice tour session on either Tuesday, August 22 or Wednesday, August 23.
