Seeking Social Emotional Learning Program Intern

I am seeking a part-time paid intern to assist with outreach and research for a social/emotion learning program.

For the past 26 years (now via zoom), we have been presenting Social/Emotional Learning programs to over 5,000 NYC public school parents and teachers. The foundation of the program is that children thrive socially, emotionally and academically in a healthy home environment. The programs support parents in taking better care of themselves through yoga/mindfulness, enhanced nutrition and by developing essential life skills they can teach their children by example: skills such as focused listening, assertive communication, peaceful conflict resolution, forgiveness, exercising conscious choice and taking responsibility.

Ideally the applicant would have experience working with education organizations or be enrolled in graduate education but this is not a necessary qualification to apply for the position.

The intern would:

1. Support and understand this type of education.

2. Be proficient in doing the necessary research to identify organizations that support Social/Emotional Learning in public schools.

3. Be proficient in contacting and speaking with interested organizations.

4. Possibly assist in the zoom presentation of our programs.

Logistics:

· A part time position requiring approximately 10-15 hours per week

· $15 per hour that can be done at home.

· The position is available as soon as possible.

· Possibility for advancement or graduate credits

Please reply to marc@familyresiliencyprograms.org with a resume and letter of interest.

Learning Coach Fellow

  • Rate: $25,000/ year
  • Location: Lynn, MA
  • Start Date: June 2020- June 2021
  • Contract Type: Fellowship
  • Building Audacity
  • Building Audacity was started in 2019 to build power for youth and communities of color in the Greater Boston area. We listen deeply to our youth and communities about the types of change they wish to see and provide them the tools, resources, and connections to lead that change. More specifically, we:
  • Support youth-led change: We deliver our community organizing curriculum, advise on change campaign strategies, and provide funding and resources for youth-led campaigns. We are currently supporting a number of youth-led change projects addressing a number of issues, including hunger and food security, child and maternal health, racial justice, and town governance structures. For example, we are supporting Athena in developing a platform to connect black, indigenous, and mothers of color with birth work and doula resources.
  • Train adults to support youth-led change: We offer trainings to adult youth workers to understand restorative justice practices and approaches to developing curricula that affirm the identities of youth of color. We have worked with organizations like City Year and the Orlando Neighborhood Improvement Corporation.
  • Reimagine public education: Our Jean Charles Academy (JCA) program provides an interdisciplinary education that centers the experiences of black and Latinx students.

About Jean Charles Academy

JCA was created to offer learning opportunities that would center the experiences and assets of black, Latinx, and students and families of color. In an increasingly global world, multilingualism and multiliteracy should be seen as assets, yet public education models still focus on getting students who speak other languages ready for English-only classes. JCA offers a dual language model where students will graduate with academic mastery in two languages and where students who speak languages other than English will be celebrated—not seen as disadvantaged. JCA began offering virtual learning resources in Spring 2020, responding to the requests from local students and families for culturally and linguistically appropriate learning resources while in-person schooling is suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. JCA students are able to take academic courses with an English or Spanish curriculum and receive instruction in their home languages.

After school babysitter in Arlington

We are looking for an after school babysitter for our two daughters in Arlington, near Arlington Center.  The job is 3-5 afternoons a week from 2:30 to 6. 

– The bulk of the time will be spent with our fun and energetic 4th grader (9 1/2 years old). We would like someone to help her navigate her after school hours while we are working from home in other parts of our house.   
–  Duties would include helping her get a snack, helping her get set up with and complete homework, helping her get ready for and logged into any remote after school activities she has (or driving her to those activities if they eventually resume in-person), and, if she has free time, hanging out together and going outside to get physical activity whenever possible.
–  The job would also include picking up our younger daughter (5 years old) at preschool at 5 pm and bringing her home, and then hanging out with both girls until we finish up with work. 
– Assuming the hybrid program moves forward in Arlington public schools, our older daughter will be at school two days a week and then remote the other three days. If possible, we need the babysitter to pick her up at school on the in-school days at 2:30 p.m., and on the remote days, the babysitter would arrive at our house at 2:30 p.m. 
–  If there is downtime while the older daughter is in a remote class or independently working on homework, we would like the babysitter to fill the time with some light housework such as unloading the dishwasher, tidying up the girls’ rooms, etc.

Pay range is $18-$22 per hour, dependent on experience. Clean driving record required. Preferred if the babysitter has her own car, though use of ours is a possibility.
