ONE-TIME OPPORTUNITIES THIS MONTH:

March 11 — Parents Night Out: 3:45-8:15pm, Encompass Early Learning Center.
Come spend time with 2-10-year-old kids at Encompass! You will be helping to set up and do a craft project, serving a pizza dinner, reading books, redirecting behaviors when necessary, and involving the kids in cleaning up the room. PNO is the 2nd Saturday of most months. Email to sign-up.

ONGOING POSITIONS:

Sibshops Teen Mentor — (2-5pm on the first Friday of every month, Encompass Early Learning Center) Did you grow up as the sibling of a child with special needs? Encompass is seeking teens to help support younger children experiencing a similar situation to themselves. Sibshops provides an opportunity to celebrate the many lifelong contributions made by brothers and sisters of people with special health and developmental needs. Email us today to learn more.

Preschool Classroom Support — (9-12pm or 1-4pm, Encompass Early Learning Center or Carnation Preschool) Want to help out in the classroom? Kids are back in preschool starting January 3rd, and teachers welcome an ongoing helper. Assist the teachers with learning centers, classroom management, projects, reading, playing and having fun. The benefits? Children get one-on-one support to hit their developmental milestones, and you get to learn more about early childhood development, positive discipline, and executive functioning. Explore a new career, elevate your skill set or showcase your talent…but most of all, make a difference in children’s lives.

Pro-bono/Professional — Do you have skills that could be of benefit to the Encompass mission? We often need photographers for our events, marketing expertise, and other office specialists. Email us to share your ideas.

Yardwork and Handyman Skills — In the spring and summer, we utilize volunteers to help us wrangle the weeds in our yard and do general maintenance on our grounds. We also have a need for one-off handyman tasks inside our offices. This is a great job for groups!Let us know if you can help out.

If you have other talents or skills you would like to share, we would love to hear from you. Thank you for being part of the Encompass mission to build healthy foundations for children.
