Congratulations to JA Board Member Jennifer L. Potter on this outstanding milestone and we wish Mamas & Babysitters continued success!

1 year ago I officially hired my first employee… We have hired over 100 people this year! YOU read that right! I could not have done it with out my Right-Hand, Nanny, Hiring Manager and most importantly friend Lainie. I can’t function most days without her. She supports every crazy idea I have, and has also helped me to build such an amazing team. This team is the reason why we do what we do!

Thank you to the glue that keeps Mamas & Babysitters running. Chrissy our amazing Bookkeeper/Organizing Manager for keeping me organized and keeps our books pristine. Natasha our Residential Housecleaning Manger for all her hard work nannying and keeping our families’ house immaculate. Big shout out to our intern Autumn for her recent promotion to social Media Marketing Manager and new to our team Cliona Admin Assistant/Office Manager.

Thank you to all our staff, contractors and partners!! I can’t wait to see what this year holds!!

I am humbled by the love, gratitude and support by my employees, clients, family and friends. #mamasandbabysitters #childcare #nannying #babysitting #housecleaning #year1 #justthebeginning

General information

Junior Achievement of Southern MA (JASM) is a local charter of the worldwide non-profit organization Junior Achievement. We work with students in 21 cities and towns throughout Bristol and Plymouth counties. During the 2013-14 school year, JASM had volunteers in 21 towns in Southeastern Massachusetts. JA reaches students enrolled in public, private, parochial, as well as after-school programs. Last Year JASM mobilized over 100 volunteers to donate 23,000 volunteer hours to local students, reaching a total of 4,435 kids. Each JA program is taught by a community volunteer who delivers the curriculum while sharing his or her personal experiences with the students. No experience in the classroom is necessary! Most of our volunteers are from the business world and just want to make a difference. JA provides all of the necessary training and materials. It costs about $850 to bring JASM to a classroom (about $40 per student). We receive its funding through corporate and individual donations, foundation grants and special events.
