Our model fosters pathways to success through excellence in education, powerful families, and strong communities for children and youth to thrive. <br><br> Our unique approach is effective because of the aspects of working together: Excellent Education: Our schools and youth centers offer high-quality education and wraparound support to educate the whole child from 6-weeks to 24 years-of-age. <br><br> Using an inquiry-based approach with social-emotional integration we nurture a child's healthy academic, physical, and social-emotional development to succeed in school, work, and life. Powerful Families: We partner with parents and provide opportunities to strengthen their leadership, provide support in stress management and education, plus counseling and clinical support, to ensure students and families thrive. <br><br> Strong Communities: We are active in our communities to create spaces that connect children, youth, and families to education and resources to lead and succeed. We have strategic partnerships with agencies and community stakeholders across LA to build trust and together give voice to our diverse perspectives. <br><br> Founded in 1980 in Skid Row, Para Los Niños - meaning &quot;for the children&quot; - was founded so that no child would be forgotten. Para Los Ninos in 1979In October 1979, the Los Angeles Times published an article that galvanized a community. It was the first of many to spotlight the plight of children and families living in the depths of despair in Los Angeles' inner cities. <br><br> It spoke of children living in Skid Row, locked in hotel rooms or left alone to wander dangerous neighborhood streets, while their parents worked to survive. At that time, little attention was paid to these forgotten children. Few services and safe havens existed for these young boys and girls. <br><br> Ninety percent did not attend school. Social worker Tanya Tull was inspired, and founded Para Los Niños. In 1980, the organization came to life in a factory where at-risk children, eager for a chance to learn, were offered a safe and nurturing environment filled with exploration, hope and opportunity. <br><br> Today, Para Los Niños continues to respond to the ever-growing and ever-changing needs of Southern California's most challenging communities. The organization's proven approach helps to build stronger, more stable families and brighter futures for children.</p><p>Job Information</p><p>Date Posted: 9/14/2022 Application Deadline: 10/31/2022 11:55 PM Pacific Employment Type: Full Time Length of Work Year: 10 1/2 Salary: <br><br> DOE Number Openings: (At time of posting) 1 Contact: Samuel Dolcine Email: sdolcine@paralosninos.org Phone:</p><p>Job Summary</p><p>Job Summary</p><p>In partnership with the Health/Nutrition Coordinator, the Nurse ensures the timely and effective delivery and documentation of health-related services to Para Los Niños Head Start/Early Head Start/Early children and families.
