The ELPS is flexible in adapting to different home environments; displays the ability to deal with challenging circumstances and the judgement to seek help when needed. The ELPS is tasked with developing strong leadership in the predominantly immigrant Mayfair community amongst neighborhood residents and school parents; facilitates solution-based discussions around multi-generational challenges and supports the development of community strategies to support a thriving and vibrant Mayfair.
The ELPS reports directly to SOMOS Parent-Child Home Program Coordinator and works alongside a team to advance early child development, family support and engagement, and authentic community decision making in local education systems, city and county government. The ELPS will conduct family visits twice a week, she/he will complete family assessments, enter data into database, assist with recruitment and support the SOMOS Mayfair Literacy Platform.
