Early Learning Hub

Request for Application: Shared P/T Bilingual/Bicultural Parent Engagement Coordinator (PEC)

January 19, 2016

Job Search 2The Early Learning Hub is seeking a community partner who is willing to share a part-time bilingual/bicultural employee currently engaging with families.  Ideally, the PEC will work approximately .5 FTE for the EL Hub and part-time for a community partner.  The PEC will serve the Early Learning Hub's three county region.  We focus on young children and their families because research is clear that giving children a strong start helps set them on a path toward future success, in school and in life.

The EL Hub has a strong commitment to engaging families as partners in young children’s development. We are building a foundation of equitable family engagement in program planning and policy decisions. Hubs are required to include parents in their governance structures and use their feedback to drive community efforts. The EL Hub currently brings in families through formal representation in the governing board and in focus groups. To secure the parent voice in the future, families will be involved on an advisory council.

The RFA due date is 2/19/2016.  Please see the RFA for a full list of PEC job duties, as well as a list of supervisory responsibilities to be split between the Early Learning Hub and the community partner sharing the PEC position.  There is also a "Timeline" document outlining the EL Hub's expectation for bringing this project to completion.  RFA may be submitted to the Early Learning Hub at elhub@linnbenton.edu.
