2016 Leader Drive
It’s that time of year again! Monthly leaders are needed to fill our Chicktime calendar through 2016. We are running a two week leader drive to fill up our volunteer events. The kids at Child Crisis Arizona depend on us and if we don’t have leaders, we can’t continue our work.
Group event dates are listed below, and always need to be one hour long (6pm to 7pm). I have listed if we are with Middlers (4 years old – 7 years old), or Big Kids (8 years old – 12 years old), or both.
January 23 (Big Kids): Amanda – Yoga
February 20 (Big Kids): Felicia – Science Experiments
March 26 (Big Kids): Angie & Jesi H. – Spring crafts
April 16 (Middlers): Nanette – Outdoor games
May 21 (Big Kids & Middlers): Chicks with Picks – Music
June 25 (Big Kids): Felicia G – tentative
July 23 (Big Kids): Need to fill
August 20: (Big Kids): Bethany P.
September 24 (All Wings): Stacy B. & Cheryl N., Spaghetti dinner & games
October 22 (Middlers & Big Kids): Angie & Jesi H. – Harvest Festival
November 19 (Middlers & Big Kids): Need to fill
December : Book drive only – no group events.
Monthly Leader Duties: Each monthly leader identifies her gift (Yes, you have one.!) … something she loves to do… her vocation, her hobby, or just something she thinks would be fun for the kids. Then create a way to teach that skill or passion to the children. The leader is responsible for developing her program, and supplying needed materials (but be sure to ask me if you need help with supplies – we have lots of extra items on hand from past events!). If you have been a leader before, you can always repeat your event too. Remember, the children that you taught / played with before, likely won’t be the same children when we go back. So it will be brand new!
If we get an overwhelming response of more leaders than we have dates listed – not to worry! Our intention is to be able to one day run events for both the Middlers and Big Kids on our scheduled dates. We can always add more events if we have the volunteers to make it happen.
We have many new members, so I want to repeat what we have said in the past – We realize Chapter members won’t make it to all of the programs, and that is okay! Chicktime is guilt free and we all know how busy everyone gets! The goal is to have enough volunteers to make the events fabulous, and that typically just happens by grace! Also, the month you volunteer to lead is the only month you have to do any leg work, the other 10 months you just show up and have fun!
We are looking forward to a great 2016 and making a difference in the lives of the children that call Child Crisis Arizona home. Thank you for all you do!
