The Backside Learning Center's Front Runners Program offers an after school program focusing on academic, social, and emotional development for children of equine workers at Churchill Downs and an English-as-a-Second Language class for parents.
Volunteers in the early childhood education classroom will work with young children ages 2-4 to provide a learning experience focusing on motor skill, language, social development.
Required Skills: Spanish skills are very helpful, but not required. Flexible, creative, reliable, patient, and comfortable working with children of this age group.
Schedule: 5:30-7 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We ask that volunteers interested commit to tutoring at least once a week on either of the two days for at least 2 months.
