    • Tour Guide Training Program

      We provide training for tour guides in how to lead interpretive tours related to slavery. Each trainee attends a tour before being interviewed; if selected he or she assists at three tours, is trained, co-leads one tour and then is observed for one tour before leading a tour on his or her own. The goal is to recruit and train six guides in 2017, with a focus on recruiting young adults of color. Once trained, each tour guide would receive an honorarium for each tour.

    • Summer Internship Program

      The Center for Reconciliation Summer Internship Program is open to graduate and undergraduate college students. The purpose of the Internship Program is to: • Educate young adults about and engage them in the work of racial reconciliation • Provide them with a short, full-time work experience that enhances their skills • Use their gifts to expand the work of the CFR • Increase their interest in non-profit careers, especially those addressing the issues of race • Bring new, fresh, young perspectives to our work. Each intern is assigned at least one major project that aligns with his or her gifts, career aspirations or interests. We hope to have two interns for ten weeks each summer at a cost of $10,000.

    • College Internship Program

      The Center for Reconciliation Young Adult Internship Program is open to graduate and undergraduate college students. The purpose of the Internship Program is to: • Educate young adults about and engage them in the work of racial reconciliation • Provide them with work experience that enhances their skills • Use their gifts to expand the work of the CFR • Increase their interest in non-profit careers, especially those addressing the issues of race • Bring new, fresh, young perspectives to our work. Internships generally are designed to provide college credit during the school year. Each intern is assigned at least one major project that aligns with his or her gifts, career aspirations or interests. That project will produce an end-result that can be evaluated as part of his or her coursework and that has the potential of being used in the work of the CFR.

    • Audio Guides for Walking Tours

      Help us buy an audio system for one of our most popular programs -- the Slavery Walking Tours. College Hill is steep and with traffic noise it is hard to hear, especially for large groups or those with hearing challenges. We want to buy a system that will give each participant a headphone so he/she can clearly hear the tour guide. We plan to use these guide in the museum when it is operative as well, making it possible for us to have larger groups and, again, especially helpful for people who have difficulty hearing.
