Many women are impoverished and over worked due to being single mothers. There are numerous mothers who work two jobs or more just to make ends meat and support their children. In addition, many of these children become latch key kids because their mothers have to work all the time to put food on the table. Parallel to this problem countless teenagers who are left alone have no productive means of using their time. Well I have thought of a solution that solves both of these problems. My solution is made up of two steps. First, the American Red Cross offers a babysitting training course for kids 11 and up so through grant money I would pay for this course and promote it to the community. With any luck, a large number of youth would attend this training and become certified babysitters. They I would advertise the newly certified babysitters to the single mothers as a viable, safe and cost effective way to ensure their children are looked after when they are unable to be with them. The end result would be single mothers have an inexpensive form of child care, and teens having both something to occupy their time and a little extra money.
