The classroom set up and decoration is for our core program, the Parent-Child Education Program (PCE), which serves low-income families with children between birth and three years of age. The program provides weekly classes during 9 months with activities that take place at 5 various elementary schools within Austin, Manor, Del Valle ISDs and the St. Johns Community Center in Austin.

For an idea of the space you will help set up and decorate, the parent classrooms include parenting instruction, educational toymaking, ESL, and resource sharing from the community. While parents are participating in class, their children are being cared for in an adjacent class space that offers early learning modules and age-appropriate learning with a focus on play, pre-literacy, and school readiness.
Heavy lifting is required, good communication skills, and willing to make a difference.
