Project Matriarchs launched in September 2020 in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic with the goal of providing relief to low income working caregivers in the form of free time. Since then Project Matriarchs has piloted and scaled its free-to-affordable service matching college students with families to provide virtual academic support and childcare.

It has been incredibly gratifying to make change on the interpersonal level that the direct service permits. We want to contribute to the momentum around transforming the way the US cares for its caregivers that our country is currently experiencing by bringing Gen Z into the conversation. This summer we are launching our new Advocacy Branch which will leverage our generation's values and convictions to create a future in which caregivers are actively cared about and cared for both on an interpersonal level and at a systemic level.  We will continue the service on a sliding scale in conjunction with the Advocacy Branch.

The Pledge will be an expression of our generation's convictions about how we want companies to support their caregiving employees—from those working minimum wage jobs to those at the executive level. By tracking signatories, The Pledge will help us demonstrate and track consensus. 

Young adults will sign The Pledge to indicate their alignment with the values, policies, and norms detailed, signaling to companies—their potential future employers—that they will value a workplace that cares about and cares for all of its caregiver employees.

The contents of The Pledge will reflect the preferences and expectations of our peers. We’ll perform an ongoing assessment of our generation’s stance on key corporate policies and practices related to gender equity and caregiving while also partnering with aligned organizations, leveraging their knowledge of best practices. 

When companies perceive alignment with these standards as a crucial way to attract and retain the next generation of talent, we believe they'll start working towards these ideals.

Your contribution today will support our commitment to equity, which is at the center of our solution.
