Volunteer Opportunities

We have several opportunities, but let’s start by sharing a little more about our “why”. 

The earliest years of childhood are critical… There are only 2,000 days between the time a baby is born and when that child begins kindergarten, and experiences during that time have a lasting impact on later learning, health and success. Smart Start brings together all the people in a child’s life – families, teachers, doctors, caregivers, social workers and many others – to ensure every child has all they need for healthy growth and development. To learn more about what Smart Start does for our community, click here.

Below is a chart of some of our more popular volunteer opportunities.

Please contact our office to learn more about volunteer opportunities as they become available. or 910-815-3731.
