BABES Volunteers

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.
