Buddy Program

Being a Buddy means having a special one-on-one friendship with a Small Steps student. A volunteer spends 30 minutes each week with his/her Small Steps Buddy, engaged in child-directed play, including games, puzzles, conversation, and other fun activities.

Parent Education Events

During evening parent education events, staff and volunteers supervise free play and lead activities for the children. When weather permits, the volunteers and children play on the playground. Parents have the security of knowing their children are having a good time in a safe place, and volunteers enjoy playing with the children. Training is not required, but a background check is necessary. This is a great opportunity for groups to volunteer.

2018-2019 dates (all are 5:15 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.):

  • March 28, 2019 at IMPACT Church
  • April 11, 2019 at the Jensen Campus
