Dream Centers Mary's Home Child Watch Day Lead

Save to Favorites

DREAM CENTERS OF COLORADO SPRINGS

Position Purpose & Overview
At Mary’s Home, we offer intentional support and resources to the resident families in order to help meet
any area of need they may be experiencing. The residents are invited and encouraged several times a
semester to attend events that are outside typical business hours resulting in the need for child watch
support during some evenings and weekend hours. These events may include going to a workshop for
personal or vocational development within the Mary’s Home Academy, or a Mary’s Home Alumni Brunch
on a Saturday. These are rare opportunities for residents to practice self-care and be more involved in
healthy community. Mary’s Home is building a Child Watch Team so the residents have the freedom to
engage in these meaningful events. The Child Watch Day Lead is the overseer of the Child Watch Team
for the day of the event that they have signed up to oversee. They are responsible for ensuring that
dependable, safe, secure, and nurturing care is provided to the children. This position is highly important
as it manages the support given to the children directly. This position is for someone who enjoys leading
other volunteers in childcare responsibilities and who loves engaging with children directly. The Child
Watch Day Lead is not responsible for leading the volunteers day to day (the Child Watch Coordinator
does this), but only on the days they sign up to be the lead.

Responsibilities

  • Oversee the Child Watch Team for specific one-time events and monitor the safety of children in your care; bring up any concerns to the Child Watch Coordinator promptly
  • Manage any issues that may arise during shifts
  • Be able to step into emergency scenarios if needed
  • Lead the Child Watch Team during your assigned event to create a safe, nurturing space for all children (utilizing training materials provided by MH staff)

A complete position description will be provided upon expression of interest.
