The Armed Services YMCA Fort Bragg is pleased to announce that we are looking to hiring multiple part-time positions. As we prepare to kick-off the 2019-20 school year we are seeking Operation Hero Mentors, Before and After School Child Care support, and Children's Waiting Room attendants.
Operation Hero: Military children bear a tremendous amount of stress related to frequent moves, parental deployment, and trauma resulting from the wounding or loss of a mother or father. Operation Hero provides a safe environment where these children can express their emotions, receive academic and emotional support, and connect with peers who are experiencing the same challenges. The program provides tools like an innovative homework app, and opportunities for military children to adjust positively to the challenges of military life. Access the job description here.
Child Care: The ASYMCA offers accessible, high quality and affordable child care and preschool in order to prepare children for future success by teaching social skills, creativity, literacy, and fine & gross motor skills. Elementary-age before and after school programs foster learning, healthy living habits, and socialization between military and nonmilitary children, which helps bridge the civilian-military divide.
Child care increases the Military Family's financial security and well-being by enabling military spouses to work outside the home or continue their education, which improves employment potential. As a result, service members can stay focused on their mission while their spouses provide vital financial resources for their family. Access the job description here.
Children's Waiting Room: Children’s Waiting Room is a free child care program located inside military and civilian hospitals that allows military parents to attend scheduled appointments without the stress of finding child care outside the hospital. Health professionals report a 30% drop in missed appointments and a reduction in sibling illness due to exposure, leading to improved health for the entire family. Access the job description here.
