here to help
As a working caregiver living in the US, a country that systematically undervalues caregivers, we understand that you may have a lot on your plate right now, particularly as we all continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
We offer a virtual academic support and childcare service. By pairing college students with your children to meet for regular sessions, we hope to free up some of your time—time that could be spent working, looking for a job, practicing self-care, or anything else.
Tenemos recursos en español; contáctanos aquí para pedir un tutor o para información en español: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Fill out our intake form to express interest: a short form to get to know your needs and how we can best support you.
Connect with your match: with the help of an algorithm that pairs college students with families according to availability and preferences, we will identify an appropriate match for your needs. We'll then email you both to schedule an initial meeting with your match to assess fit, set expectations, and get to know each other a bit. Expect a matching email within 48 hours.
Assuming the pairing is appropriate, you will then begin scheduling sessions with your college student.
We'll check in regularly to see how things are going and help facilitate any necessary improvements. We will be available to provide support whenever needed.
We are committed to meeting every family we work with exactly where they are financially right now. We ask that those comfortable contributing do so in the form of a regular donation reflective of an hourly rate that feels sustainable.
