I’m a Mom of twin toddlers. I thought that as a twin mom I would miraculously grow an extra arm to manage everything they throw at me, but it doesn’t seem to be coming in… So I downloaded the Skratch App.
Skratch is a demand-based app that connects teens with adults who are looking for help with tasks. You post a ‘gig’ and a teenager accepts the gig and shows up to help you out.
Two words: Life changing!
A couple days later, she showed up at my door right on time and kept an eye on the twins while I prepped dinner, folded laundry, worked on a project that had been on my to-do list for 6 months and drank a glass of wine.
She left an hour later and was paid directly through the app at a totally reasonable rate. As I shut the door behind her, I felt like Superwoman. Where has this resource been all my life?!
The Skratch App simplifies the opportunities for teens to earn an income, and for adults to find the help they need. Maybe you’d like to hire a 15-year-old to help your child learn to throw a curve ball or to help you clean out the garage…
Skratch is user-friendly and once you try it you’ll be hooked.
Pilot Program with Boys and Girls Clubs of Collin County
“We learned so much from our first pilot (in Fall 2017) with Boys and Girls Clubs of Collin County so to be able to work with this collaborative organization again, is a gift,” said Lindsay Feldman, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Skratch.
Payment for gigs completed was funded by Skratch, through money raised from the United Way
of Metropolitan Dallas’s GroundFloor program.
Without a doubt, parents and teenagers in Frisco benefit from the mutual partnership within Skratch and I’m looking forward to seeing it continue to grow. In the meantime, I plan to post my next gig soon!
