  • Use your impeccable Spanish language skills to engage Latina families at Back-To-School Nights and other community recruitment opportunities.
  • Engage with families at Back-To-School Nights and other community recruitment opportunities.
  • Handle administrative tasks related to recruitment and registration of members and reporting to funders.
  • Meet recruitment and troop formation goals.
