About

Bilingual Family Engagement Liaison

Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children and their families? Would you like to apply your expertise in engaging families to strengthen our impact in the community?

Jumpstart is looking for a skilled volunteer to support the Los Angeles Community Corps team! Our program provides preschool children in underserved communities in South LA, Boyle Heights and Compton with literacy activities to help them thrive. We currently engage families through bi-monthly newsletters and orientations to strengthen learning at home. Become a volunteer to improve this aspect of our program!

A volunteer is needed to support, strengthen, and innovate our family engagement efforts. Prior experience in early education and/or family communication (such as Head Start, LAUP, or other child care and family engagement agencies) desired.

Some of the volunteer tasks include:

  • Represent Jumpstart & promote early literacy during parent meetings at preschool sites across Los Angeles
  • Act as a liaison between family engagement coordinators at preschools and Jumpstart staff
  • Provide strategies & tips to help strengthen the connection between Jumpstart Foster Grandparent volunteers in the classroom and families
  • Be a thought partner in strengthening & innovating our family engagement program

Ability to speak Spanish, occasional travel to preschool sites, and a commitment to the remainder of the school year are needed. This position requires proof of TB test/immunizations required by licensing and clearance of a Criminal History Check.

Hours vary, but are flexible. Interested or have questions? Email CommunityCorpsLA@jstart.org or call (213) 387-5513 and ask for Deisy.
