Here’s a great shot by Jim McPherson of one of the 10 monuments to the Bill of Rights, dedicated in December in the Wesley Bolin Plaza in Phoenix.

Downtown Voices Coalition is proud to have been an early supporter of this project, the first in the nation. Read more about this accomplishment (and see more photos) here.

Arizona Capitol Museum accepting applications for Fall Volunteer session

The Arizona Capitol Museum is now accepting applications for the 2012 Fall Volunteer session. Volunteers provide assistance to visitors, staff, and other constituents by leading tours, answering guest questions, staffing the Museum Store, as well as working on special projects in the Education and Exhibit areas as needed. Positions are determined by your interest and aptitude, and our current needs.

The Museum is open Monday through Saturday, and Volunteers typically commit one day per week from 10 am to 2 pm. Accommodations for other commitments, schooling, internship requirements, and other exceptions are negotiable as needed. “This season, I’m hoping more Downtown Phoenix residents apply, folks who can recommend the sites, restaurants, and hidden gems that our commuter Volunteers don’t know about yet,” added the Capitol’s Volunteer Manager Jason Czerwinski.

The Arizona Capitol Museum accepts applicants age 18 years and older (some exceptions can be made for 17 year old students). You do not need to be trained in history. All training is provided free of charge. Enthusiasm, a desire to learn, simple computer skills, and the ability to stand for extended periods, walking, and climbing stairs are basic requirements.
