FIUTS is Looking for New Facilitators!

FIUTS is looking for dedicated individuals to join our team of Facilitators! Facilitators are our leaders who assist us with the planning and implementation of our over 200 events every year, and we’re currently recruiting volunteers for our International Welcome Weeks! Any student (undergraduate or graduate, from the U.S or anywhere in the world) can become a Facilitator, and once you sign-up you can choose which events you want to volunteer at!

Why become a facilitator?

  • Enhance your resume with flexible volunteer hours
  • Gain cross-cultural leadership experience and training
  • Plan and lead fun events like hiking trips and CulturalFest
  • Help with programs to welcome new international students
  • Make friends and have fun!

If this sounds like something that you’re interested in, visit www.fiuts.org/facilitators or come to the FIUTS office in HUB 206. Our next New Facilitator Orientation is August 6. Email info@fiuts.org if you have any questions.

HSDC Behnke Preschool Volunteer Opportunity, Seattle

Behnke Preschool is a unique preschool with an emphasis on language and literacy. Our curriculum is progressive, developmental, and multi-sensory with individualization. We take a theme-based approach to learning and integrate early math, science, social studies, language, music, art, and social skills into fun and interactive activities. We serve children with and without hearing loss and/or speech-language delays.

Work Description:
We are looking for volunteers who are passionate about working with young children (ages three to five) and who enjoy promoting learning through language, reading, and fun! Classroom volunteers are expected to engage with children, which may include reading books, supporting art projects, engaging in pretend play, and encouraging positive social interactions. In addition to playing with the children, we may ask our volunteers to assist the teachers with prep work or handling of materials as needed. During snack time we ask that you help prepare snack items as well as wash the cups and bowls when finished. Additionally, volunteers are welcome to read our daily story if they would like a more hands-on experience!

Impact:

The students work directly with the children making an impact on their lives now and in the future. One parent states: “We really appreciate all of the time, effort, and attention to detail that the teachers put into making the classroom a special, fun, and engaging place for the kids. Awesome!” This time and attention would not be possible without the help of volunteers such as yourself.

Please contact Kelsey Peterson at kpeterson@hsdc.org if you have any questions or are interested!

Volunteers Needed at Rosen Family Preschool

Volunteer Classroom Aide: Rosen Family Preschool – ASL/English Bilingual Classroom

When: Mondays through Thursdays – 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. Volunteers may sign up for full days or partial days, as long as they commit to those shifts for the entire quarter. Rosen is in session from Fall-Spring quarter.

What: Classroom Aides support the learning of young children ages 2 to 5 in our ASL/English Bilingual Classroom. We have deaf and hearing students in our classroom, all of whom are at different stages of fluency in American Sign Language. The primary language of group instruction is ASL as we strive to create a fully accessible immersion environment for our students.

Who: We request that volunteers have the ASL skill equivalency of at least 3 courses. This is a great opportunity for teachers in training, ASL students, and native ASL signers.
