Student Docent Cultural Ambassador Program (SDCAP)

CHCP is looking for high school and college students who are interested in becoming Student Docent ‘Cultural Ambassadors’ for CHCP events/activities as well as for the Chinese American Historical Museum.

Students will improve their self-confidence and speaking skills as they interact with and guide visitors through the museum and enrich their knowledge of Chinese history and culture at various CHCP historical and/or cultural events. There are also opportunities for Parent Team Volunteers where at least one parent participates with his/her teen, providing a fulfilling experience for both teen and parent(s).


The Chinese Historical and Cultural Project (CHCP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and all donations to CHCP are tax-deductible in accordance with IRS regulations.
