Children's Friend Parents as Partners
Children's Friend, an innovative leader in improving the well-being and healthy development of Rhode Island's most vulnerable young children, is currently accepting applications for its AmeriCorps program, Parents as Partners. The Parents as Partners program seeks Family Hub Liaisons to improve preschool students' readiness for kindergarten by increasing opportunities for family engagement within multi-lingual and low-income families enrolled at four Children's Friend sites in Rhode Island: Central Falls, Wansuck/Charles/Smith Hill, Upper South Providence, and West End areas of Providence. Family Hub Liaison AmeriCorps Members are the agents of change in Parents as Partners. The Family Hub Liaison is a direct connection between parents and the early education center. Family Hub Liaison's promote collaborative and responsive relationships between centers and families. They enhance families' access by actively welcoming parents into centers and organizing parent activities at the Hub or surrounding neighborhood. They support parents' engagement by sharing information and facilitating school-family communication. College students in early education and human development fields, working professionals who are interested in new career opportunities, parents, and individuals who are passionate about supporting parents, their children, and community are encouraged to apply!
