Sitters Without Borders Moves to Virtual Sitting due to COVID-19

Sitters Without Borders is now offering Virtual Baby Sitting Sessions to parents who are taking on-line classes. The sitting sessions are available to parents while they are taking an on-line class or if they need time to do homework.

  • One hour sessions per week
  • Child/children should be 5 years or older
  • Parent must be at home during the entire virtual sitting

A virtual sitting is not the same thing as in-person babysitting. A virtual sitting is using a volunteer sitter to engage children via Zoom/Facetime/Hangouts/Other, for a short period of time. The sessions can be used to assist kids with schoolwork or facilitate an interactive game—like charades. It’s not a replacement for physical care but instead occupies the child to free up the parent while they take an on-line class or do homework.

With virtual sitting, a sitter can: Help with their schoolwork, Play games to keep them occupied, Guide them through engaging activities.

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 or 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.

We welcome you to apply today! https://www.sitterswithoutborders.com/
