Coronavirus wreaked havoc on kids and families in Arizona. Many children were out of high-quality early learning environments, many families had parents need to leave the workforce to take care of their kids at home, etc. Many are able to head back to work, and for people to head back to work, we need kids back in programs and people running those programs!

Available positions include:

  • Family Support Specialists and Home Visitors
  • Mental Health Consultants and Family Counselors

“The past year-and-a-half has been devastating for many of our partners in the early childhood community and for many families we serve who have been disproportionally impacted by the coronavirus pandemic,” said Jake Adams, Chief Development Officer at Southwest Human Development. “Families have struggled to make ends meet, children have missed out on social-emotional development from not being able to attend high-quality early learning settings, and many preschools and child care centers have struggled to remain open and operate safely, with some even having to close their doors altogether.”

WHEN: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 26, 2021
WHERE: Educare Arizona, 1300 N. 48th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85008
