Volunteer as a Lakewood Tour Guide

Lakewood tour guides 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.

Wednesday and/or Sunday availability is required for tour guides. Our walking tours are on Wednesday evenings, and most trolley tours are on Sunday mornings and afternoons. We do one walking tour and one trolley tour per month, but also require tour guides for events like Doors Open, Memorial Day, Fall Colors, and more.

Training is done for 2024, and at this time, we do not have another training scheduled. To be added to a waitlist for training opportunities, please fill out the form below.
