- Volunteer Opportunities / Responsibilities: HOPE CORPS MEMBER (CHILDCARE VOLUNTEER)
Child care is an ongoing need for many of our Scholars. When Generation Hope holds special activities, we donít want lack of child care to prevent our Scholars from participating. We need caring, nurturing individuals to provide child care at various events throughout the year.
The Hope Corps is our childcare volunteer program! Hope Corps Members commit to providing childcare for at least three Scholar events (at least one shift per event) over the course of an academic year. Hope Corps Members are trained on our childcare approach, so as to ensure that all childcare volunteers continue to provide outstanding childcare and fully understand Generation Hope's childcare policies & expectations. *Applicants must complete a background check and a 2-hour training.
When we hold activities for our Scholars, their children need snacks! Our Snack Crew provides juices, waters, small sandwiches, and other munchies for the children to eat (no peanut products). The goodies must be dropped off one hour before the event.
We're looking for individuals who have experience and expertise in the following areas to serve as tutors for our Scholars: English, Math, Science, and History/Government.
HOPE CONFERENCE WORKSHOP PRESENTERS
We are looking for individuals who can present on various topics during our annual Hope Conference on June 21, 2014 for Generation Hope Scholars and expecting or parenting high school students. Possible topics include healthy relationships, career preparedness, and parenting skills.
MENTORING A GENERATION HOPE SCHOLAR
Each year Generation Hope selects a new class of young mothers and fathers and matches them with mentors from the community to encourage and support them in their pursuit of a college degree. This is a multi-year commitment.
