Have you heard about our brand NEW T.E.A.C.H. Corps program?
NevAEYC is seeking AmeriCorps members and Host Centers (child care centers) to participate in an exciting new program… T.E.A.C.H. Corps Nevada!
This September NevAEYC will be launching T.E.A.C.H. Corps; co-sponsored by NV Volunteers (the Nevada state office for AmeriCorps) and NevAEYC. NevAEYC has been awarded funding to place 10 T.E.A.C.H. Corps service members to serve in childcare centers throughout the state. T.E.A.C.H. Corps members will focus on: promoting literacy skills to children in rural and urban areas, provide release time coverage for teachers to pursue education, as well as assist centers in developing disaster preparedness plans.
This full-time, 11-month program will provide members the opportunity to expand their knowledge in the field of early childhood education, crisis management, and gain transferrable skills in leadership, management, and program development. Members will be placed in Host Centers and will conduct a minimum of 1700 service and training hours. With a full time T.E.A.C.H. Corps member, Host Centers gain: 1500 hours of the T.E.A.C.H. Corps members time, a customized disaster preparedness plan and training, free access to specialized early childhood training for all staff, support of NevAEYC T.E.A.C.H. Corps Program Coordinator, individualized literacy activities for the children, release time provided for scholarship recipients by T.E.A.C.H. Corps member, and much more!
We are looking for both service members to assist us in making an impact in early childhood education and centers who are interested in hosting these T.E.A.C.H. Corps service members at their sites. Member applications are due by August 10th 2013.
