- We are looking for a volunteer presenter that is willing to work with us long term. Our current staff member is going on maternity leave at the end of April, and we would love to have someone to help coordinate and fill in the gaps with presentations.
- Give presentations to children ages 3 yrs old through 2nd grade, on safety, including personal safety in a short (15 min) program over a series of 10 days.
Must be available days and be willing to submit to a background check. Flexible hours - approx. 5-10 hours a week (dependent on the schools’ schedules), but for each group of children you are presenting the program to, you must be able to commit to 10 consecutive days. We serve several schools and preschools throughout the year. You do not have to commit to being the presenter for all of these, but we would like you to be able to present to a least one school a year. We will provide you with the necessary training, materials, and support to provide this program.
About Washtenaw Area Council for Children
3075 West Clark Road, #110, Ypsilanti, MI 48197, US
Our mission is to promote child safety and well-being, and to prevent child maltreatment, abuse, and neglect through educational service and programs to children, parents, community members and youth-serving professionals throughout Washtenaw County. VISION: All children in Washtenaw County will have a happy childhood in a safe, healthy environment.
WACC was established in 1975 as the Washtenaw County Coordination Council for Children at Risk to specifically address to need of inter-disciplinary, inter-agency cooperation in matters concerning the safety of children and youth. In 1983, with the formation of the Michigan Children's Trust Fund, the agency became a designated council for the Trust Fund and began to establish priorities for program development for the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Today the Council is composed of individuals and agencies who work together to prevent child abuse and neglect, strengthen families, and to improve the welfare of children in our county. Council membership includes representatives from schools, law enforcement, the courts, health care, the Family Independence Agency, private social agencies, mental health providers, business and the general public.
