Become a docent.

Docent, Yes!

What's a docent, you ask?  It's a person that guides visitors through the Iannelli Heritage Studios giving the background and historical information on Kalo and the artifacts that we display.  And yes, we provide training.  Please contact us at info@kalofoundation.org.
