MIDTOWN NEIGHBORHOOD OPPORTUNITIES CORPORATION

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 3 people are interested

We are on a nonprofit that provides educational workshops on parenting and healthy child development twice a month to a wonderful group of moms in our community. We provide child care during the workshops so that our moms can focus on the information being presented, engage with our speakers and the other moms, and get the most out of the workshop.

We would love it if you would consider volunteering to help us with the child care! It takes place in a large playroom equipped with all kinds of toys and books, and we have tons of craft supplies, art materials, and developmentally appropriate games and activities that we design and provide. Of course you are welcome to come up with your own games and activities as well!

The children are between the ages of 0-4. There will always be a staff member helping with child care as well. Workshops are the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month from 11:00-12:30.

Thank you for considering helping us out!
