    First, do yourself a favor and take CPR class first. Parents will feel safer and you'll have piece of mind in case something happens.

    Then, make up a little business card or flyer and list your age, your time and days available, what your skills are, what you like to do and what you can offer to parents. Things like arts and crafts, cooking, sports, tutoring, reading, games...ect.

    Then, pass them out! Have your parents around the first time you meet the adults just to make sure they're legit parents and not...predators.

    First start with neighbors with children and let them know that you would like to babysit if they ever need one. Next, you can go to a community bulletin board and have an add for babysitting. Get your parents to help you with that.
