Part-Time Trainer – Education – New York – Hispanic Federation

The Hispanic Federation seeks a part-time trainer for its Pathways to Educational Success project. Pathways is an initiative focused on instructing Latino parents on how to foster a home and school environment which encourages academic achievement and excellence among Latino children.

The Early Childhood component of Pathways instructs parents/caregivers on learning activities and techniques that they can use at home to enhance their children’s literacy skills. Below are some of the ways that Pathways helps create a path to academic success for our families:
 Assists parents/caregivers in enhancing their children’s literacy skills through language building activities and exercises.
 Increases knowledge throughout the community on the importance of early childhood literacy.
 Formulates innovative ways for parents to work with their children and the school system to overcome social and academic challenges.
 Provides resources that facilitate and promote reading and learning.
 Markets and disseminates information so that parents are both aware of early childhood literacy methods and are motivated to use it.
 Examines behavioral change in the family household through outcome evaluations.

The Pathways trainer will:
 Educate Latino parents on the realities of the Latino academic achievement gap, and the unique needs and obstacles facing Latino children, adolescents and parents as they interact with the school system.
 Formulate innovative ways for Latino parents to work with their children and the school system to overcome these obstacles; and set their children on a path of academic achievement and excellence.
 Implement bilingual (English/Spanish) early childhood curriculum for parents.
 Prepare lesson plans for four workshop sessions.

 Two two-hour workshops per series to take place on weekday mornings (8am-10am) or Saturday mornings (8am-10am) throughout the course of a month. Flexible schedule is preferred.
 Trainer will collaborate with HF’s Director of Education in implementing workshop.
 Must be Fluent in Spanish.
