Supervision & Training:

Volunteers will be supervised by the Childcare Coordinator. Basic orientation will be provided. Volunteers will always be with a staff member while working with parents and children.


This opportunity is located at the Families First main offices in Portsmouth, and occasionally at offsite locations or events if volunteer agrees.
