Do you like working with young children? Do you want to help support families with children from birth to six years old? Do you want to make a difference in the Fern Ridge Community?
Fern Ridge School District is seeking a Family Resource Coordinator to run their Family Resource Center. The Fern Ridge’s Family Resource Center provides outreach and support to families of children who aren’t yet in school. This includes weekly “play” groups to build literacy, numeracy and social skills training in 3 to 4 year olds as well as parent education activities. The Fern Ridge Family Resource Center is located at the Fern Ridge Middle School, but this position will be actively working at both elementary schools, collaborating with administration and working with staff to identify students and families in need of support. Candidates should have good organizational and clerical skills. The position is 15 hours a week during the school year with flexible hours. Pay range is $14.75 to $15.25
Updated as of 11/1/18: This position has been filled.
Over the last several months, folks at the Lane Education Service District have been working on a program that would fund driver ed training. This program could be particularly beneficial for rural communities like ours. We have received a grant from the ODOT Safety Division for Oregon residents.
The grant fully pays for tuition for the course. The course is 9 weekends long (both days) for a total of 18 days that includes classroom discussions, video presentations and hands on exercises. The only cost for participants is paying a $100 materials fee and a $10 criminal history check.
Successful completion of the course would make you an ODOT approved Driver Ed instructor. Every year thousands of Oregon’s teens become new drivers, and every year motor vehicle crashes are the No. 1 cause of death for teens aged 15-20. Oregon is facing a statewide shortage of ODOT approved driving instructors and fewer instructors mean more teens on the road without proper training.
Becoming an ODOT approved instructor is a nice way to make some extra income, it saves lives, and it helps parents. Questions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may go to http://triwou.org/projects/tse/scheduleofcourses for more information and to register for the series of courses that take place in Eugene, beginning in late October.
