“Back to school” has an entirely new meaning for families this year, and kids need extra support to stay connected, motivated, and confident in remote learning environments.
As a JFCS EduCorps Coach, you will support kids and their families through the transition to online learning. Coaches help with homework, reading, and focusing on small tasks, and provide emotional support during challenging times.
Volunteer Training Information
A virtual JFCS EduCorps training will focus on engaging and supporting children’s social and emotional health. We will provide an overview of children’s engagement best practices, information on California school curriculum standards, and an introduction to emotional intelligence. Following the training volunteers will be matched with a student; coaches and students will meet via Zoom weekly from September – December.
JFCS EduCorps Coaches receive on-going support from their cohort and from experts at JFCS’ Center for Children and Youth.
Training begins in mid-September! Please apply by September 4, 2020
