Help new parents connect and thrive! Bilingual volunteer group leaders needed.
2 people are interested
Our volunteer Group Leaders create a welcoming space for new parents to share, connect, and support one another. They are the best kind of experts: usually parents themselves, and also often grandparents, aunts or uncles. They don't have all the answers, but they are passionate about facilitating engaging discussions which help parents generate ideas, find information, and build neighborhood communities together.
We love our facilitators to be parents themselves. We appreciate warm, sensitive communicators who are accepting of varied child-rearing practices and diverse lifestyles. Interest in early childhood development, postpartum support, experience in education or facilitation, or previous PIPsqueaks Group participation are welcome pluses. We are looking specifically for bilingual English/Spanish speakers to lead groups in our Community-Based program.
Leaders commit to working with their group for 8 consecutive weeks. PIP provides specialized training for every Group Leader, and Group Leaders have access to experienced PIP mentorship.
