Volunteer (Tour Guides)

Friends of Old St. Thomas Tour Guides

FOST Guides:

1. conduct public tours of Old Saint Thomas and Ivy Mills historic sites on the fourth Sundays of each month, 1 PM – 4 PM, June through October;

2. conduct private tours by appointment;

3. conduct student tours for Saint Thomas School 4th and 8th grade students.

Guides take part in a training session at the start of each public tour “season.”  Each Guide receives a full set of instruction materials, including a detailed set of notes for both Old Saint Thomas and Ivy Mills.  Guides commit to one or more Tour dates during the public tour “season,” and help with special tours as needed.  Guides are invited to all FOST events, and are invited along with all other Volunteers to the annual Fall Appreciation Breakfast.  New Guides are always welcome!  No experience needed.
