ORGANIZATION: Amherst H. Wilder Foundation

Wilder Logo

About 90 percent of a child’s brain development happens before the age of 5! This means it’s the perfect time to help kids learn Spanish. Wilder's Child Development Center would like to start teaching their children Spanish as there are many benefits for providing language learning at a young age.

As a Volunteer Spanish Teacher, you will share your language abilities and teaching skills to help our students ages 2 to 5 learn Spanish. You will prepare weekly lesson plans in collaboration with classroom teachers that are age-appropriate for toddlers and preschoolers and then bring those plans to life in the classroom. You can promote learning through play, song, instruction, activities, and/or conversation. Anyone who cares about young children’s social, emotional and cognitive development can help provide Spanish-language instruction to help CDC kids grow and have fun learning. Help expand the horizons for CDC’s kiddos and enseña español!

Responsibilities include:

  • Attend training with our Family Program Coordinator
  • Prepare content prior to your volunteer shift each week and connect with the Family Program Coordinator and/or teachers to develop plans
  • Provide a brief interactive weekly or bi-weekly lesson to teach kids Spanish in one classroom or multiple classrooms (options depending on volunteer preference)
Qualifications needed:
