Make a difference by becoming a Sprout Day Trip Leader!Are you passionate about working with people who have developmental disabilities? Are you looking for a fun, flexible opportunity where you can actually see the difference that you're making? If so, Sprout may be exactly what you're looking for!
Sprout's NYC Program provides evening and weekend recreational activities for highly-social adults with mild-to-moderate developmental disabilities. These activities are all over the five boroughs of New York City and include sporting events, museums, art classes, festivals, dinners and more!
Sprout Leaders provide supervision to our groups for 2-6 hour long excursions while encouraging positive socialization and having fun with them. Leaders also assist with some logistical elements of activities such as handling a small budget or directing a participant to the nearest subway station.
Each month, Leaders are sent a calendar of events and can choose the activities they would like to lead. We only ask that Leaders follow through with the commitment they make to assist with those activities.
NO special background or education is required to become a Sprout leader. We encourage people from all cultures and professions, and of all ethnic and educational backgrounds. Once accepted into the program, you will receive a training session which will provide the necessary tools to sign up for and lead future activities.
*We encourage applicants with diverse experience-levels and backgrounds
*Must be 21 years or older
*Fluency in English required
