How can we help you?
Our mission is to serve healthcare providers and other essential workers, patients, and communities here in Pittsburgh during the coronavirus outbreak. Our goal is to identify needs and create teams of student volunteers to help address those needs. We want to start by helping those on the frontlines of COVID-19 who need help managing their household. Our caregivers provide in-person tutoring, babysitting, online tutoring, pet-walking/sitting, grocery runs, errands, and more. It takes a village!
We know kids are stuck at home, missing their friends and looking for new ways to learn and have fun. Check out our upcoming classes that we hope will bring a little fun to your home!
To sign up, or just to get more info on one of our classes, send us an email at Pittsburghcovidsitters@gmail.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Art classes with Maryland
Two classes for all ages!
Sign up for a seat in our new Live Online Art Class taught by Ms. Simpson, who has been teaching art for 45 years. She is so excited to show your kiddos how to get crafty with supplies found around the house. There are two classes available on May 8th and May 22nd, but spots are limited so sign up today!
Acting classes with NYC
Four classes for all ages!
Our friends at NYC CS have partnered with CGL studios (http://www.creategivelive.com/) to provide FREE acting classes for children ages 4 - 18. This is a wonderful opportunity for children to engage and interact with others and bring out their inner actor/actress from the convenience of their own homes!
There are four classes currently scheduled for the month of May (May 8th, and May 9th) which will be lead by Mia and Matt, founders of CGL studios. Mia is a New York based actress, voiceover artist, and acting coach.
Yoga class with Pittsburgh
One class for ages 7-12!
We are very excited to be offering a yoga class on May 15 from 3-3:30 pm to interested kiddos ages 7-12. The class will be hosted by Lilly Ackles, who has been dancing, stretching, and exploring the exciting world of yoga for many years!
