BABES, Beginning Awareness Basic Education Studies, is a program sponsored by Dove, Inc., which brings worthwhile life skill lessons to children in grades K-3rd, in Macon and DeWitt county schools.
BABES will be seeking additional volunteers to cover all of the classrooms requesting this valuable program. If you would like to make a difference in the lives of 6 to 10 year olds, please consider becoming a volunteer.
This volunteer commitment is usually an hour a week for six weeks and that covers two classrooms. The presentations are made in pairs. Bring a friend who can be your partner or be teamed with a person during the training.

Love the outdoors? Then the Macon County Conservation District might be right where you belong. Fall opportunities outside include volunteer naturalists (programs/hikes/canoeing/fishing), natural area restoration, trail monitors, and more. Indoors include activities such as nature center greeter (front desk) or library attendant.
Prefer inside on a rainy day? Why not try somewhere dryer. The Decatur Public Library's local history room could use a couple new pairs of hands too!
Perhaps you would rather spend some one on one time mentoring a child doing something fun. Big Brothers Big Sisters has children waiting for that special Big. Are you him or her?
Love working with your hands? Habitat for Humanity has opportunities with every aspect of building homes or repairing furniture/fixtures for the ReShop.
