Work  Opportunity

The HIPPY program is designed to employ home visitors from the community, themselves parents in the program, to maintain regular contact with participating families.  For many home visitors, this is one of their first jobs.  During their time with the HIPPY program (usually 2- 3) years, they learn a variety of skills, including time management, organization, administration, filing, and computer skills, and they gain expertise in early childhood education.  They learn these skills while acting as agents for change for several families and for the whole community, which is a highly empowering experience.  Many home visitors use this increase in skills and self- confidence to go on and further their education or take on jobs with more responsibility to seek higher skilled jobs. 


New home visitors are most likely recruited each year of the HIPPY program.  As they are recruited from among members of the community, most often from the existing pool of parents, further employment opportunities are provided in the community.  Many parents, after working with their own children in HIPPY during the first year of the program, are eager to share their experience and enthusiasm with others in the community.  This becomes a 
stepping stone for their own further education and skill- building.
