We currently are in need of a volunteer to assist our Child Advocate in our Children’s Program.. The volunteer shift would be every Wednesday morning from 9:50-11:30 am, working with primarily babies and toddlers.
Duties and Responsibilities include:
* Provide childcare and/or therapeutic creativity workshops with children while moms are attending groups, counseling sessions, or meeting with case managers.
* Be consistent and on time. (remaining consistent will help the children develop trust and build healthy relationships)
*Support and listen openly to what the child has to say (Support and listening to each child’s concerns and needs will help develop rapport between child/volunteer /child advocate)
*Have patience with children ranging from 7 months -8 years old. (Patience is a very important action in the children’s program , Distress is something children pick up on very easily and may act out, misbehave or mimic the behavior if volunteer is constantly in a state of distress)
