To apply for a Volunteer Babysitter position, you must:

  1. be 18+ years old

You get to help a mom break out of her cycle of poverty and become economically independent. And you do it all by playing for a few hours a week!


The bond you form with the child is something that will be remembered for the rest of their life. And the education that the mom gains while you babysit her child, will also be something that  lasts forever.


There are 72 moms in Boston Area, waiting to be matched with a Sitter like you.
