Volunteer Opportunities

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.

We are in the process of reviewing guidelines for fall semester should volunteers be allowed in the classrooms.

Our normal proceedures are:

Volunteer commitment is usually an hour a week for six consecutive weeks and that covers two classrooms. The presentations are made in pairs, so bring a friend who can be your partner or be teamed with a person during the training.

BABES is seeking additional volunteers. If you would like to make a difference in the lives of 6 to 10 year olds, please contact Barb Blakey at 217.428.6616 for the next volunteer training opportunity.
