Supervisor: Outreach Services Coordinator and Support Group Facilitators
Duties and Responsibilities:
Kidworker volunteers will provide meaningful child care and supervision for children of various ages ranging from infancy to adolescence. Meaningful child care includes providing nurturing, esteem-building activities along with sensitive, non-judgmental listening. Child care must always be safe and supportive for all participating children and must be based upon awareness of the impact abusers have on children. Kidworker volunteers provide supervision and support for children whose parents are involved in any of Caring Unlimited services.
Kidworkers must agree to commit to at least two to four hours twice a month for one year. Generally, Kidworkers arrive on site 15 minutes before group to set up and greet children and stay 15 minutes after group to clean up. Child care is provided at various Caring Unlimited sites throughout York County. Day and evening hours available.
It is essential that child care is provided for all groups therefore, if you are unable to fulfill your scheduled child care shift, it is important that you find a replacement from the Kidworker list and notify the Outreach Services Coordinator or the group’s facilitator.
