Jumpstart is a national early childhood education organization that works towards the day every child in America enters in Kindergarten prepared to succeed.
Jumpstart is seeking members to add to their advisory council to advise on how to best improve their current program processes.
Project Description: As the Community Outreach Volunteer you will be in charge of bringing in new "Grandparents" for Jumpstart. You will be asked to attend events and present on Jumpstart's behalf, or coach members to implement an outreach plan. The ideal candidate is Spanish speaking (but not required), enjoys researching, will bring new ideas to the table and diversify their outreach approach. You will be updating outreach lists of locations and finding more schools in South Los Angeles to work with the Jumpstart "Grandparent" Program. You will also be responsible for organizing and presenting info sessions to various community groups (i.e.: neighborhood councils). When applicable, you will be directing the advisory council on outreach strategies, including directing where or whom they should call, and advising on how the phone screening script could be better.
Requirements: Training and interview required. Knowledge of older adult programs including low income, 55+ persons, who can recruit "grandparents." Comfortability with public speaking, and recruitment procedures.
Time Commitment: This opportunity is flexible in both schedule and time commitment during regular business hours.
