Update 7/26/21: We’re delighted to announce that beginning August 2, 2021, Stepping Stones will welcome volunteers back to the Shelter. Opportunities will be limited to donation sorting, clothes closet and kitchen organizing, administrative, and school supply sorting and stuffing. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, opportunities to work with parents and children remain on hold.  All resident, staff, and volunteers are required to wear a mask inside Stepping Stones regardless of vaccination status.   

Youth Volunteers & SSL Hours

3 SSL hours can be earned by a youth volunteer for providing a meal (lunch or dinner).   You must sign up to provide a meal and fulfill the request as described in the sign up below.  You will need to provide a completed SSL/Community Service form to Helen Domenici at Helen@steppingstonesshelter.org.  It can take up to 5 days for the form to be signed and returned. Sign up below to make dinner or lunch. 

Dinner: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/409044fa5ae29a4fa7-dinner 

All other off-site activities that a youth volunteer seeks to gain SSL hours must be pre-approved in advance by Helen Domenici at Helen@steppingstonesshelter.org.  Examples of off-site activities that require pre-approval include donation drives, baking, and knitting, etc.  

Students age 15 years or older can also earn SSL hours by providing in-shelter tutoring, child care, or playtime with the kids.
