WORK WITH US TO SUPPORT WORKING PARENTS
WHY WORK FOR US?
Due to the fact that many of us are taking time off from school, learning remotely, or unable to participate in our extracurriculars as usual, we have a lot more flexibility in our schedules. We hope that you, like us, feel committed to doing something constructive and meaningful with this time, particularly for those being impacted disproportionately by the pandemic. This job will allow you to directly support working mothers and their children, many of whom have been excluded by prohibitively expensive alternatives. The hours are flexible and your schedule will be designed to accommodate your existing commitments.
WHAT THE JOB LOOKS LIKE
For now, the job is all virtual. We ask that you commit to at least 3 hours a week and up to 15. If you hop on board with us, you're committing to working with us for at least the entirety of the fall semester.
1. We want to make sure that the care we provide to children effectively meets their and their parents' needs. For that reason, you will go through a brief interview process so that we can get to know you and assess fit.
2. We will match you with a family depending on best fit according to availability and timing.
3. Once paired, we will facilitate a discussion between you and the parent you're matched with to asses fit and understand the kind of support that will be most helpful to them and their child(ren), whether that be class/homework support, enrichment, mentorship, or childcare in some form. This conversation will be an opportunity to set and align expectations with one another and schedule your preliminary sessions.
3. Assuming the fit is good, you will then begin your sessions! You'll have the freedom to design your own sessions. You'll also have access to a shared drive where our college students can share helpful resources, lesson plans, and best practices, so we're building community and supporting one another.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
