ORGANIZATION: Steps to End Domestic Violence

  • 2 people are interested

Position Title: Drop-In Childcare Provider

Staff Category: Volunteer

Team: Youth Program

Reports To: Youth Program Coordinator; Volunteer Coordinator

Description of Role: This position is designed to provide drop-in supervision for service users who have meetings, appointments, or interviews to which they can’t bring their children. Being able to access childcare during these times makes it easier for people who are impacted by domestic violence to obtain the services they need to transition into an environment that is safe and stable in the long term. This is a drop-in/on-call position, so while you would commit to being in the building for a certain amount of time, there would be other projects within the Youth Program to work on if no service users needed childcare during that time.


· Provide supervision of service users’ children on a drop-in basis in the playroom or lounge at our shelter.

· Interact compassionately and empathetically with children of all ages from a variety of backgrounds.

· During a shift when childcare is not needed, work with the Youth Program Coordinator and Youth Advocate on other projects to assist the Youth Program.

· Commit to making the Youth Program a safe and welcoming space by maintaining service user confidentiality.

Training Requirements:

· Complete our 20-hour Community Advocate Training to obtain VT Victim and Crisis Worker Privilege. This is provided through us, free of charge for volunteers!

· Complete 3-hour Mandated Reporter Training. If you have documentation that you are already a mandated reporter in the state of Vermont, you do not need to go through the training again!

· Shadow at least one group with the Youth Program to get familiar with our residents, their children, and Youth Program protocols before taking a childcare shift.

Time Commitment:

· Shifts are available in two hour blocks Monday-Friday from 9-5.

· We encourage you to commit to at least 2 shifts a month.
