Exploring This Job

An excellent way to explore your interest in and aptitude for this work is to volunteer. For volunteer opportunities in medical settings, find out what local hospitals, outpatient clinics, or nursing homes have to offer. Opportunities to work with children are also available through organizations such as Easter Seals, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, and Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America. In addition, volunteer or paid positions are available at many summer camps. Babysitting, of course, is another way to work with children as well as earn extra money. And a good babysitter is always in demand, no matter where you live.
