The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust volunteer program will host fall volunteer training sessions from Tuesday, Oct. 17, through Thursday, Nov. 2., at the Frederick C. Robie House, 5757 S. Woodlawn Ave.

The training session will include online study, class lectures, and workshops leading to certification for volunteers that want to become interpreters and tour guides.

In addition to Robie House, the foundation is also offering volunteer training sessions for Frank Lloyd Wright structures in Oak Park, Ill.

Volunteers will present world-class historic sites and their neighborhoods to an international audience, cultivate long-lasting relationships and receive ongoing education and training on topics related to history, design, and Frank Lloyd Wright.

Those that are interested in volunteering for the program must attend an informational orientation to qualify for enrollment.
