Love children? Do you want to help young parents gain a greater chance at successful parenting?
JF&CS is looking for volunteers to provide babysitting / childcare for the children of parents while they participate in a Parents Group Program. The babysitting will take place onsite in Waltham, with toys and books appropriate for this age range. Parents remain on-site during their workshop. Childcare providers should be comfortable playing with and holding children (but are not asked to change diapers). Volunteers are asked to be warm and welcoming to our young parents, many of whom have never utilized childcare before.
JF&CS Healthy Families
Future Dates are TBD - but we'd love to know if you're interested!
Lunch will be provided for volunteers, parents and children. Requirements include a background and experience with children with the ability to carry child/ infant if needed.
Please let us know of your interest by applying directly to JF&CS at http://www.jfcsboston.org/. Go to our Volunteer tab to fill out the General Application Form. Please indicate the childcare opportunity in your application. We look forward to hearing from you!
