Volunteer Opportunities

Chaucie's Place relies on volunteers to support our Smart Steps: A Body Safety Program for Children©, special events, landscaping and general operations.

Our largest ongoing volunteer need is for our Smart Steps program. If you are considering becoming a Smart Steps Volunteer please review the list of expectations and see if this would be a good fit for you.


  • Our Smart Steps presentations are typically on Monday and Wednesday mornings in Hamilton County schools between 8:30am-11:00am.
  • Volunteers do not have to commit to a specific number of presentations so if your schedule allows you to help once a month or once a week we appreciate your time.
  • Complete and pass a Criminal History Background Check
  • Attend the 1 hour Smart Steps Volunteer Training
  • Attend the 2.5 hour Stewards of Children Training within the first 6 months of being a volunteer
  • Follow the provided Smart Steps program script during all Smart Steps presentations
