Do you enjoy meeting people? If your answer is “YES!”, the Maryland Welcome Center Program under the Office of Tourism Development is expanding its Welcome Center Volunteer Program. There are 4 state-operated Welcome Centers in Maryland located in Charles, Worcester and Howard counties.
Travel Counselors greet visitors, assist with directions, hotel accommodations and itineraries, greet motorcoaches and work with tourism industry and private sector representatives. Volunteers are trained as Travel Counselors, have the opportunity to participate in Welcome Center Programs such as familiarization tours, new product and customer service seminars, and team meetings.
Volunteer Hours – The Welcome Center Volunteer program calls for a minimum of four hours, but no more than eight hours per day. The Welcome Centers operate four days per week, and volunteers participate anywhere from one to four days per week.
Hours of Operation – All Centers operate from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. Welcome Centers are closed on all state and federal holidays as well as the following State Service Reduction Days: September 3, 2010; November 24, 2010; December 23 and 30, 2010; and May 27, 2011.
