Neighbors Link is recruiting volunteers for our Parent Child Together Program occuring at our Yonkers Site.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering in our Parent Child Together program. Parent Child Together provides parents with peer to peer learning opportunities with a focus on positive parenting skills, early childhood development and school readiness. While the parents learn, the children participate in activities within the classroom covering shapes, colors, numbers, letters, pre literacy concepts as well as helping them gain the social emotional and self regulation skills needed prior to entering Kindergarten.
This is a 2 hour program in which the first hour the parents and children work separately and at this point, staff and volunteers help the children with separation and also carrying out the activities for the hour. In the second hour, parents and children come together for activities and the role of the staff and volunteers at this point, is to model techniques for struggling parents and assist when a parent has more than one child in the program.
