Over the past three decades, the Task Force has grown from an all-volunteer effort to one of New Mexico's leading nonprofits, with a governing board that advocates for policy change to support a community where breastfeeding is the social norm. As we strive to promote breastfeeding, bridge the gap in breastfeeding disparities, and support mothers, families, and communities, we still rely on the support of community members like you.

We have identified a variety of volunteer opportunities based on the priorities listed in our strategic plan and have many opportunities for you to choose from based on your interests.
