111 Bowstrom Road, Athens, GA 30606

Note: Drop-in childcare is offered here, but availability depends on whether enrolled students are absent that day (so not very reliable, but could be an option if checked on the day of conference).

Athens FetchIt

FetchIt was created by several Athens moms who desired to connect with local UGA students to assist them with miscellaneous chores and to utilize some of our student’s amazing talents! Many moms at UGA use FetchIt to find babysitters and nannies.

How does FetchIt work? Request to join the FetchIt group, pay $1.99/mo through PayPal (…), and get access to students who will work for cash and Athens locals who need help! Click this link to join the group!
