Current Volunteer Opportunities

Last updated 2019-11-05

We’ve listed the opportunities alphabetically by region (Bay Area, Fresno, Reno, and Sacramento).

 

TEEN SUCCESS HOLIDAY DONATION DRIVE

Every year, our volunteers lead a holiday gift drive for the teen moms who are part of PPMM’s Teen Success program, a support group for young women who are navigating adolescence and first-time   parenting. These teens, who already had to grow up very fast, save every penny to buy holiday gifts for their babies. Can you lend a hand so these young moms, who often have to go without, can also feel special this season of giving? 

 

We have Teen Success programs in four cities: Bakersfield, Fresno, Reno, and Sacramento. Follow this link for details on how to donate in each city and for the suggested donation list.
