Help sign-in children, play and read to toddlers, rock babies, change diapers, and clean up while parents attend class at Little Steps. Students ages 16 and up may volunteer in the Children’s Area. Students ages 12–15 may volunteer in with an accompanying adult, maximum 2 students per adult.
Work with Young Parents

Donate a Meal
A prepared meal is needed for 35 people on Tuesdays and Thursdays for our families and volunteers. This is a great way for families and small groups to get involved and help our organization!
Serve a Meal
Help set up for dinner, keep the line moving, and then clean it all up at the end. This is a HUGE help to our staff! Background check required.
Log in donations and sort donated items into designated categories. Restock the Baby Boutique as needed and help keep track of inventory.
