Daytime Volunteer Options

Individuals that volunteer on an on-going basis during STEP’s office hours are critical to supporting the daily service needs of St. Louis Park families. In order to best support these on-going needs, we do ask that volunteers during STEP’s office hours make a commitment of volunteering on a weekly basis for at least 6 months. Volunteers do assist in various areas of STEP–the most common roles are listed below although STEP is always open to talking about how your talents and skills can meet needs for our organization.

Please note: All volunteers must be at least 18 years old to help during STEP’s office hours.
