Burlington, Vt. - Not all high school students are using these strike days as vacation days. Some are finding a way to give back.
At the rally in support of Burlington teachers on Sunday, a high school junior named Vaughn Martin set up a table for a "Babysitting Co-op". 26 high schoolers have volunteered to babysit during strike days in exchange for community service hours that count towards graduation.
The "co-op" service is to help parents of younger children who aren't ready to leave them home alone.
"I have babysat someone already for the first few days of the strike and they obviously needed it because both parents weren't home," Martin said. "I just know that some parents need it."
Martin said he is looking for more high schoolers to come forward to babysit.
If parents are interested in using the service, they can shoot Vaughn an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
