We are looking for volunteers to help us expand our Little Steps program, helping preschool aged children and their moms!
Until a year ago, there were no set activities for the toddler/preschool aged kids living at Union Rescue Mission. Many of the mothers with little ones had a hard time getting to appointments, searching for jobs, and apartment hunting; others needed some assistance in teaching their children the things they needed to learn before heading off to school.
One of our faithful volunteers saw this need and started up Little Steps on Tuesdays for children ages 2-6, reading to them, doing arts and crafts, and playing with the children. Now, we are looking for more volunteers to facilitate the learning and fun time Monday through Friday!
What it is: Reading, arts and crafts, and playtime with children. Some library organization while children are eating lunch.
Time/Commitment: Little Steps is from 10am-2pm. We also ask that volunteers be willing to commit to a minimum of every other week for 3 months.
First Step: Contact the volunteer department to set up a “job shadow” of Little Steps on an upcoming Tuesday. After the visit, you can decide whether or not you are willing and able to make a commitment to be a volunteer.
