Little Steps is a non-profit organization that provides comprehensive services to teen and young parents. They offer an environment of encouragement and accountability to help young parents become more confident in their parenting skills. Their goal is to equip young parents with the tools to ensure a bright future for their children. Through peer groups and mentorship, Little Steps participants are more likely to graduate from high school, have realistic parenting expectations, and have a network of support. These factors ultimately reduce the risk of abuse and neglect and prepare these children for kindergarten, which is crucial to successful outcomes and breaking unhealthy generational cycles. Group volunteer opportunities include working directly with parents and children, donating or serving a meal, sorting donations, and fundraising.
Rebuild Upstate's group volunteer days are called “build days” because you’ll be doing just that—getting your hands dirty while working on a home improvement project for a neighbor. At the end of the day, you’ll see the fruits of your labor: a finished project that fills a need immediately. You’ll witness firsthand the impact you’re having on a homeowner’s life. They welcome church groups, community groups, groups of friends, and businesses both small and large. Group volunteers don’t need to have any special training, just the ability to lift some lumber and work outside!
