Amethyst Place is recovery housing for women (overcoming drug/alcohol addiction) and their children. Moms have classes (strongly encouraged or required) in evenings and to make it possible for them to attend and focus on learning, we provide childcare to as many as 24 kids at a time. We need volunteers to assist our staff member(s) in giving these kids the attention they need and crave.
For this time of year we do childcare mostly 5:45-7:15 on Wednesday and Thursday nights (moms' classes are 6-7) and one Saturday per month from 9:45 am - 12:15 pm (moms' art club is 10-12). In any case, someone for staff will be on site for you to check-in with and then your role is mostly playing with the kids, paying attention to them, talking with them, etc. so that moms don't have to worry. On weeknights we're in a specific child care room with 10-20 kids. On Saturday mornings you'll be in the same building as the class, just in an adjoining room or out on the playground with about 2-5 kids.
We invite all volunteers to come to an Open House (including orientation) before serving in our childcare program. Upcoming dates are listed on our website at www.amethystplace.org (text link on the right side of the page or bottom of the mobile version). If dates listed don't work for you, please reach out directly to Volunteer Coordinator Mandy Caruso-Yahne at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an alternative. We look forward to meeting you and having you meet our kids!
We'll work with your schedule.
