Would you enjoy leading pre-schoolers in fun exercise activities?! Then helping out with Special Gym Time at Ames Community Pre-School Center (ACPC) would be perfect for you! It is a great experience for the children, they even came up with the name "Special Gym Time". It is every Tuesday from 2:00-4:00pm. Volunteers help with leading exercise related activities and games to kids ages 3-5 years old. The time will consist of 4 groups, each 30 minutes long. It's a ton of fun and a great way to apply what you've learned in classes and give back to our community! You can sign up by the week, or sign up in advanced for as many weeks as you would like. If you have any questions about helping out, please contact Bria (
