The Junior Interpreter Program is open to coastal Georgia youth ages 14 to 18 years who wish to learn about the historic site, the principals of historic interpretation and customer service. The training program is conducted each summer beginning in June. Junior Interpreter Day is the final event of program when these young people showcase their new skills. There is also a JI training program conducted in the fall in a partnership with American History students from the Savannah Arts Academy under the tutelage of AP American History teacher Michael Johnson. This program is limited to SAA attendees only.
The training process for our Junior Interpreters takes eight weeks to complete. There are seven two-hour training sessions and then each JI conducts an evaluation tour with the program’s coordinator. Following this, the JI can begin giving tours to the public.
JIs have the opportunity to help with programming throughout the year.
The Davenport House Museum offers two programs for teenagers, a Junior Interpreter program held in the summer and a Savannah Arts Academy Junior Interpreter program held in the fall.
