How We Serve
Dear Monthly Chick Leader,
Thank you so much for offering your time and passion, all in the good name of love and community! Chicktime cannot do this without YOU!. We look forward to speaking to you about your talents and ideas to serve others and in how we can empower and inspire others in the Miami community. Most human beings are all in the need of examples of love, compassion and hope. Chicktime loves connecting all this elements and reminding everyone that we all have something to share and give to the world.
WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?
Here are a few general guidelines for leading a Chicktime monthly session:
You will need to provide approximately 30 minute programs. We recommend you invite 3 girlfriends to lead three of the programs and you lead the fourth. The programs need to be based on the passions and talents of the leaders. For example, if you love to bake, prepare a program that will allow the girls to decorate cookies or cupcakes. If your girlfriend loves yoga, she will prepare a 30 minute yoga class and teach the girls the basics… or your girlfriend may love basketball and she could teach a 30 minute basketball clinic. *A listing of program ideas is attached and available on our website under Program Ideas. We recommend that you incorporate either a snack station or a food item that would complement one of the programs because the children love to eat!
-Once you decide what ideas, talents, services, you will provide, call Jennifer Puig at 305-608-5848 and discuss your ideas with her.
-You are responsible to bring ALL volunteers needed to facilitate your programs.
-Additional volunteers will join us on any given Saturday, but they will serve as mentors and rotate through the stations enjoying time with the girls. You may bring additional volunteers to come and ‘play’ in addition to you program facilitators! Bringing your own volunteers to run the programs also opens the opportunity for new volunteers to experience the power and beauty of Chicktime!
-Chicktime Miami will create an invitation for your event. It is important that you organize your programs as early as possible so that we get the invitation out to the general public. Ideally, we would like that information 2 months prior to your event. We will be in contact with you to get the specifics needed to create the invitation.
-Chicktime Miami will send out the invitation for you using our database to our regular volunteers. You are encouraged to send the invitation out to your circle of friends and family as well as print them off and distribute to your community if you desire. On that note, please encourage your friends to fill out our web form and sign up to join Chicktime Miami. Simply click the subscribe button at the bottom of every page to open the web form. Make sure to select Miami-Florida from the drop down menu. You are welcome to send a link to the web form to your friends, post it on your Facebook page, and even include it as part of your email signature!
What to wear:
-We typically wear jeans, capris/long shorts and Chicktime t-shirts. We will have Chicktime shirts available prior to each Chicktime. T-shirts are available with $20 donation… we encourage you all to get one because it helps spread the word about Chicktime! This is how we raise money for special projects for the children.
