Volunteer

The easiest way to get involved with Be Mighty Little Rock is by becoming a volunteer. With your help, youth in Little Rock will be able to eat, play, and learn in a healthy, active, and safe environment.

Volunteers are an integral part of the meals program. Volunteers must be 16 to 65 years of age. Volunteers under 18 must have parent/ guardian approval. Lunch shifts are from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. seven days a week. For more information and to sign-up as a volunteer with meal distribution, click here. Contact Polly Deems at pdeems@cals.org for more information.

Volunteers must sign in and out using the daily log. On the log, you will confirm that you agree to facial coverings and social distancing, that you are free of certain symptoms and fever, that you have not been exposed to someone with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19, and that you have not traveled to a high-risk area as defined by the Arkansas Department of Health. Thank you for helping us protect each other and our community as a whole.


If you get tested for COVID-19, please cancel all scheduled volunteer shifts until receiving test results.  
If the volunteer experiences any symptoms of COVID-19 they must meet the following criteria before returning to volunteer:

  • 3 days with no fever and
  • Respiratory symptoms have improved (e.g. cough, shortness of breath) and
  • 10 days since symptoms first appeared 

CALS requires the volunteer to be tested again at the end of their quarantine period. The volunteer must receive 2 negative test results in a row, from tests administered at least 24 hours apart. 
If the volunteer tests positive for COVID-19 but does not experience any symptoms, they must meet the following criteria before returning to service: 

  • 10 days have passed since the test
  • CALS requires the volunteer to be tested again at the end of the 10-day period. The volunteer must receive 2 negative test results in a row, from tests administered at least 24 hours apart
