About

Greenwich Head Start and Family Centers' School Readiness Program (located at Armstrong Court in Greenwich) seeks dedicated volunteers to work in our classrooms with children ages 3 & 4 years old. Volunteers should enjoy being around young children in a preschool classroom setting and should be comfortable talking and listening to children with the ability to "get down on their level" both physically and mentally. Volunteers should enjoy books and stories that are age appropriate and also have the ability to "ad-lib", enhance stories and ask questions as they go. The goal of this volunteer position is NOT to teach young children to read, but to inspire good feelings about reading and books and to increase interest in reading and books both inside and outside the classroom.

This volunteer position is very flexible and can take place either in the morning (between 9:30-12:00) or in the afternoon (between 3:30-5:30). The minimum age to volunteer is 15, and those volunteers over the age of 18 are required to complete a background check. All volunteers are asked to schedule a personal interview.
