What We Do
Our work at Little Lights is two-pronged, aimed at addressing the roots of systemic racism and also combatting the poverty resulting from generations of discrimination.
Group Volunteer Opportunities
Little Lights has several opportunities for groups to get involved with our ministry. If you’re interested in volunteering with a group, contact our Volunteer Coordinator.Contact Us
Gain experience with urban ministry with this team-building opportunity for groups of 10 or 20 individuals. We welcome teams of youth, college, and adults.
Saturday Program offers students a safe, fun place to spend their unstructured weekend hours. Twice a month from 10am-1pm , a volunteer group of 6-12 people play an instrumental role in providing personal attention to students, as well as organizing a craft project and supplying packed lunches for all of the students.
Upon arrival, students are paired with a volunteer “buddy” and spend a few hours together playing games or sports, reading, and doing arts and crafts. As students leave, they are also given a packed lunch.
Since Saturday Program involves less structured activity, it is an ideal time for staff and volunteers to forge more personal relationships and spend extended quality time with students.
HOST A DRIVE
If you can’t bring your team into the city, consider hosting a drive. Throughout the year, or seasonally, our students need things likes school supplies, backpacks, gifts for Christmas, and more. This is a family friendly opportunity and one of the ways you can start to involve your children in urban ministry.
