Retired and Senior Volunteer Program

Childcare and early learning programs are expensive and unaffordable for low-income families throughout the New Orleans area. Many young parents, who are employed, work for minimum wages and are unable to pay for a childcare program. The Head Start program promotes school readiness for economically disadvantaged children by enhancing their cognitive, social, and emotional development in a learning environment that supports children’s growth in language, literacy, mathematics, science, social, and emotional function, creative arts, motor development and physical skills, and approaching learning. Early learning intervention, according to Head Start-An Office of the Administration for Children and Families Early Childhood Learning & Knowledge Center (ECLKC) has proven that children perform better academically and socially if a child is in a learning environment at an early age and are more successful in later years. The child in later life will succeed better in elementary and secondary education. RSVP volunteers will help nurture the students emotionally in hopes that the student will have a positive day in class. The Volunteer may so assist with reinforcing the basic knowledge skills need for Kindergarten; such as ABC, color and shape recognition. Volunteers will act as positive models.

Due to the renovation of the building at 2020 Jackson Ave the Head Start Program is now temporary located at People's United Methodist Community Center 2019 Simon Boliver Ave. Volunteers are needed from July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019.
