Starfish Family Services in Need of Baby Power Volunteers
We are looking for volunteers for our Baby Power group. Baby Power is a 10-12 week attachment based parenting group.
Child Team Members will:
provide child care and activities for infants and toddlers while their Moms attend group
support Moms & their children during dinner time
observe attachment behaviors between mother & child
assist with set-up and clean-up
attend a debriefing session after each group
document observations of parent-child interaction and child behaviors
- play a vital role in an ongoing research project
This is an opportunity to learn more about attachment and infant
& toddler development. This is also a great experience for students in Early Childhood, Social Work, Psychology, and for those preparing for a career in Infant Mental Health.
Attend a mandatory Child Team orientation (1/29/13, 3-5pm or 2/18/13, 3-5pm).
Complete the Starfish Volunteer intake process, including a DHS clearance, TB test, and criminal background check.
- Be available to attend group once a week. Our next groups start Wednesday evenings in February 2013 and Monday afternoons in March 2013.
