Childcare collective seeks volunteers

The DC Childcare Collective, a small all-volunteer group, is founded on the belief that mothers, women of color, and people with low income are critical leaders of healthy and effective social justice movements.   As an act of solidarity, the DCCC provides free childcare to progressive groups in the DC metro area that are working to further social justice.
It is our mission to make childcare that is safe, fun, and empowering available to families, as a way of supporting their work to further social and political change.
The DCCC provides childcare to groups in order to make their work more accessible for people who are most affected by the lack of affordable, quality childcare options.

DCCC is holding a Volunteer Orientation on Sunday, February 7 from 1:00 - 5:00 pm.   Volunteers are asked to make a commitment to provide childcare at least six times over the course of 12 months and attend additional trainings that DCCC provides.

If you are interested, complete the volunteer application on the DCCC Web site and send it to dckids (at) gmail (dot) com, or email them for a copy.   The deadline for applications is February 1.
