NYU Langone Sunset Park AmeriCorps - Check & Connect Mentor
Sunset Park AmeriCorps, is a full-time, service program for people ages 18+. Must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Members work directly with the community based programs through the Family Health Centers at NYU Langone. Sunset Park AmeriCorps exceeds the responsibilities of a typical 9 to 5 job. All placement sites may assign additional work, a member must complete additional Independent Service Project (ISP) hours, and members are required to participate in team days, service projects and selected site specific trainings. Positions Available: 1. Parent Child+: (Spanish or Mandarin fluency) The Member will provide health education, early literacy support, and child development guidance to families with limited English-speaking abilities. Services will include home visits twice a week to families with at least one child between the ages of 16 months and three years old. On the first visit of each week, the Member brings a carefully-selected book or educational toy and the curricular material for the week, which is a gift to the family. In the home sessions with the parent (or other primary caregiver) and the child, the Member will model positive verbal interaction, reading, and play activities, demonstrating how to use the books and toys to build language and emergent literacy skills to promote school readiness. 2. Check & Connect Mentors (English fluency): Members will be placed at 4 different locations. The members will use the Check & Connect evidence based intervention model and work with a cohort of students throughout the year. Check & Connect is an intervention used with K-12 students who show warning signs of disengagement with school and who are at risk of dropping out. Students are referred to Check & Connect when they show warning signs of disengaging from school, such as poor attendance, behavioral issues, and/or low grades.
