ORGANIZATION: Red Deer Native Friendship Society

The volunteer could propose a categorization and create a system, this would be helpful to everyone who works or wants to work with children to find appropriate resources.
  • Once the categorization is done, match this list with the Celebrating Families! one (we have a list of suggested books). The volunteer could recommend Indigenous books to add and other resources.
  • Suggests new books and resources that might be missing.
  • Review and improve the curriculum for Little Paws, for the children that are part of childminding.
  • Other tasks as needed.

This volunteer position will be in-office, the schedule is flexible and can be coordinated with the volunteer. This volunteer position is expected to be fill as soon as possible.
