Provide Childcare During Young Moms Programs 

Help Young Moms make the most of our programming. As a Childcare Volunteer, you’ll provide our Young Mom’s children with a safe space to play while their parent is learning parenting skills, financial literacy, what to expect in pregnancy and more. Childcare Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and have at least one year of experience working with children under the age of three. Ideal volunteers are friendly, responsible, self-starters that aren’t afraid to change a diaper.
Childcare volunteering takes place during our Young Moms Programming
on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 5:45-7:30 pm, but scheduling is flexible.
