Have fun babysitting while enabling a low-income mother to attend her higher ed classes!



Time Commitment

A few hours per week


United States


Babysitting with SWOB is an experience like no other. Our organization trains volunteers and sends them to client's homes- low income mothers around Boston- to provide free weekly babysitting sessions of up to four hours while they are in college classes!

Our community of SWOB Sitters is made up of college students, parents, working adults, retirees and others who want to give their time to empower a student parent to improve life for their family. There is opportunity for regular, weekly volunteering of up to four hours, or the opportunity to Substitute on a more occasional basis throughout the semester. We work around your experience, availability and preferences to find a family that is a great match.

This is a fantastic opportunity for those who enjoy and have experience watching children, to get involved with unique and fun community service with a vital mission. Our organization relies on the work of our volunteers, and we welcome you to apply today!

We especially need volunteers with daytime experience, and those who have worked with infants before.
