Volunteer Opportunity in Austin:

Come and Play With Me needs volunteers to help with a new YMCA Early Learning Readiness program. This program is in its beginning stages and at this moment offers two classes: one in English and one in Spanish. The curriculum is participant based with monthly evaluation done on the children’s progress to ensure their development is always considered. The focus of the YMCA Early Learning Readiness program is to help the child’s caregiver become also a teacher for their children. The goal is to give families the tools for long term success.
The volunteer opportunity is a one-semester commitment of 1 day a week for two hours in classrooms. For those in need of hours and wishing to help with the child evaluations or curriculum development we also have volunteer community liaison positions available.
