The Tubman museum will build institutional capacity and effectiveness by hiring and training an education coordinator to assist the director of education and outreach to meet the growing demand for onsite tours and educational offerings. The May 2015 opening of a long-awaited new museum building in downtown Macon, along with growing partnerships with schools, colleges, and community organizations, has resulted in an increase in demand for tours and value-added offerings. The education coordinator will assist with promoting, booking, and conducting group tours; recruiting and training volunteer docents to lead tours; and scheduling value-added activities by Tubman outreach teachers including drumming, art workshops, and creative movement. The Center for Program Evaluation and Development at Georgia College will conduct an external evaluative assessment of the project that will serve as the basis for future planning.
