Volunteer Opportunities

Small Steps Nurturing Center – Buddy Program

Buddy Program
The buddy program is a very unique opportunity not only for the students but for the volunteers. Buddy volunteers are paired up with a student where they spend 30 minutes each week with their buddy in our library. Buddy time is intended for child-directed play that can include doing puzzles, playing games, and having conversation. The commitment for this program is once a week. Individuals set their own schedule. The time frames are:

  • Monday-Thursday : 9 a.m. -12 p.m. or 2 – 3 p .m.
  • Friday – Mornings only

To sign up and schedule a time, please contact Avery Bennefeld.
