You will work closely with new and existing early education providers throughout Middlesex County, especially in municipalities that do not provide free or reduced preschool, and have high numbers of babies who are eligible for Medicaid. You will provide training to the providers to strengthen their work, and maintain and use our tools. You will also share and update this work via technological means.In addition, you will be part of the broader PRAB VISTA Community Action Project (CAP), which is a partnership between PRAB and UWCJ. You will join a dedicated and supportive professional team of service providers, and a VISTA Community Action Team that is working on Community Partnership and Volunteer Development, Communications and Special Events, Resource Development, and Institutional Development.
