Team Building & Conflict Resolution Advisor
Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children and the Foster Grandparent volunteers that serve them? Would you like to apply your experience in team building and conflict resolution to strengthen our program?
Jumpstart is looking for a skilled volunteer to support the Los Angeles Community Corps team! Our program engages Foster Grandparent volunteers (part of Senior Corps) who provide preschool children in underserved communities with loving relationships and literacy activities to help them succeed. Foster Grandparents work closely together in teams of 5-7 in the same preschool across an entire school-year. Our Foster Grandparent corps consists of diverse volunteers from different cultures, backgrounds, and generations (ages 55-95). Teams with healthy dynamics & strong communication implement higher quality activities in the classroom and are more likely to stay with the program year after year.
A volunteer advisor is needed to help strengthen team dynamics and resolve conflicts between teammates when they arise. Prior experience such as team building activities, inter-personal communication, motivational speaking, or conflict resolution desired. Tasks will vary based on your individual expertise and could include:
- Implement or design team-building activities for the corps
- Assess & provide feedback regarding how to improve recognition events and activities
- Provide presentations regarding respectful communication, team-work, and healthy relationships
- Offer conflict management support or informal mediation for individuals or teams as needed
- Identifying free resources (trainings, agencies, etc.) to strengthen this area of our program
This opportunity is flexible in both schedule and time commitment during regular business hours. Join one or more trainings, help when conflicts arise, or share resources to be used year after year. For more information please email CommunityCorpsLA@jstart.org or call (213) 387-5505 and ask for Kayla.
