Babysitter Help

Richard Strauss

APPLICATION LINK

Hello GW Hillel Members!

I am a neighbor of sorts, living on Edmunds Street, NW, right near Mass and Wisconsin Ave NW. I am Jewish, am from CA, went to UCLA, and was active in my own Hillel and other Jewish organizations.

I have a wonderful young son and I am looking for student or grad-student babysitting support to watch my son for when I have mostly evening meetings or other engagements.

I would love to be introduced to any students that are open to and have experience with babysitting. This is not too heavy lifting, it’s mostly just being at my home while my son is sleeping during the evenings.

If you are interested, please feel free to reach out to me at rstrauss@straussmedia.com.
