The Basics Inc. was created to implement the Boston Basics Campaign (BBC) whose mission is to change the ways that whole communities support early childhood parenting and caregiving. We mobilize existing social and organizational networks to embed the Basics — five simple, evidence-based parenting practices — routinely in their normal operations and interactions with parents and caregivers of infants and toddlers. This will help ensure that children build solid developmental foundations and are ready to learn when they enter kindergarten. The Basics is a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE MissionWorks.
This Program Associate (PA) position is part of a team charged with instituting widespread use of the Basics in all sectors in Boston. The PA reports to the Program Director. The PA will help create and execute strategies that share the Basics with staff and volunteers in the healthcare, early childhood, and social sectors. This position will work closely with community based organizations, agencies, and businesses that interact with and serve families of young children. This position is for 25 hours per week and will end on September 30, 2020.
