If you love working with children, then you need to check out Growing Futures Early Education Center. Their mission is to nurture children and strengthen families to enrich community and they have a lot of great, flexible opportunities for volunteering!
Growing Futures is always in need of classroom assistants to support our teaching staff and children in daily classroom activities and routines. Growing Futures curriculum encourages children to make choices, engage in interactive learning, and talk about what they’re doing. You’ll get to share your time with children as you read stories, work puzzles and support creative thinking and pretend play in a positive and nurturing environment that promotes growth and learning in these critical first-five years.
As an Early Head Start and Head Start program, Growing Futures Early Education Center offers frequent evening education opportunities for parents of enrolled children. Evening programs usually occur on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month and some Tuesdays from 5-7:30. In addition, occasional play groups are offered in the evening. While parents learn, we provide childcare and could use your help supervising children.
