What

ABERG CENTER for LITERACY needs volunteers for our Adults Relating to Kids (ARK) program.

The ARK program at the Aberg Center for Literacy works to improve relationships and build healthy environments through the understanding and application of unconditional love and care. ARK programs are researched-based, stemming from a ground-breaking study conducted in partnership with the University of Texas School of Public Health that discovered a new paradigm for building a child's self-concept.

This program provides a deliberate opportunity for parents and teachers to meet in a structured, confidential, small group setting, group members are able to team-build, problem solve and ultimately build better relationships with one another, their students and among the parents.

ARKGroup Facilitators support our teachers and parents through the ARK process.

Qualifications include innate relational skills such as: good listener, open-minded, non-judgmental, keeps confidences, compassionate, and a sense of humor! Additionally:

  • Need to attend one eight-hour facilitator training with the ARK staff.
  • Meet weekly, for 8 weeks with parents/twice a month with teachers to facilitate the ARK process.

Beyond the one-day facilitator training, there is ABSOLUTELY NO PREP WORK REQUIRED for ARKGroup Facilitators! They simply show the videos and facilitate small-group discussion.
