The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Do you want to help our 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 3. 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 (5:45-7:30 pm), but scheduling is flexible. This volunteer opportunity is not available for short term volunteers (less than 3-month commitment), or large groups. These guidelines help our clients build trust, familiarity, and relationships with their volunteers. A background check is required for this position.
