4 people are interested
- The New Jersey Parents Caucus is in need of 2 volunteers to help us develop and implement a tutoring program which will be provided in Morris and Union Counties for New Jersey children entering K to 8th grade in the fall 2021.Tentatively, the Union County location will be in Elizabeth at our office in Ttrinitas Regional Medical Center; the Morris County location will be at the American Legion in Jefferson Township.
- The tutoring program will be managed by our Director of Education, Karen Helmstetter, who has taught K-8 in the areas of Reading, English, and Math in the state of New Jersey for over 25 years. The program is in response to the impact Of Covid on our children’s education and that children have suffered because of the pandemic and the consequential loss of consistent in-person education. We need help to develop a program name, goals, objectives, and final locations. Also we need help to identify volunteer tutors and develop job description. In addition, we need to develop a schedule of when tutoring will be offered, pricing structure, brochure, and social media plan. We’ve decided in addition to providing English, reading, and math, we will also offer a yoga class one day a week, as well as an animal saver/rescue class. "Dr. Becky" will bring in small cats and dogs and introduce them to the children as part of a compassion program in animal rescue.
