Spring Series and Guide Training Program

Register for the annual Boston By Foot Spring Lecture & Guide Training Series! This annual program is a requirement for new docents, and is open both to Boston By Foot members andthegeneral public. Many of our senior guides return every year to renew their knowledge and experience the course again.Guides In Training

Led by distinguished professionals, the lectures trace Boston's topography and architecture from 1630 to the present. As a guide-in-training, you will receive the background, materials, and mentorship to lead informed, insightful, and interesting guided walks of Boston.

While there are no course requirements for auditors, each auditor is invited to participate fully in all program activities. Alternatively, you may also enroll for a single session, and attend the lecture and demonstration tour for that day. Guides-in-training must attend all program activities including the informative lectures, engaging discussion groups, and the demonstration tours that bring the material to life. Graduation requirements include four written assignments, a final exam, and a practice tour.
