Multi-Lingual Storytime Volunteers

The West End Family Place is a free drop-in program for children under the age of 5 years old and their parents/caregivers. The program features a variety of activities that promote healthy child development such as circle time with songs and stories, free play, arts and crafts, and parenting. *Due to COVID-19 restrictions we have moved this program to a mixture of online via Facebook and in-person with pre-registration.*

We have been living streaming our daily programming at 10am here on our Facebook account. Currently we provide Storytime through our Facebook account in English and in Spanish. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who can help us to provide Storytime in additional languages. Volunteers would need to record a 15 minute story-time video each week, this video will then be shared on our Facebook account during story-time on Thursdays or Sundays at 10:00 am

Volunteers will need to spend roughly between 1- 2 hours per week preparing and recording the video. Volunteers should enjoy reading and singing to children. Previous experience with children’s programming is not necessary, but it is an asset. Volunteers can use appropriate stories and materials of their choosing, but if volunteers need support with resources we can provide them with books, stories, etc.
