Approved as a Bright Futures volunteer location, the Junior Docent Program at Heritage Village encourages teens ages 12-17 to learn about local and Florida history and share that knowledge with youth groups participating in the Passport Adventures summer program. Junior Docents provide historic house tours, demonstrate living history activities, play historic games, learn traditional crafts, and much more.
