Update 2/5/21: Due to covid-19, we have suspended all volunteer opportunities except for the lunch and dinner programs. We will update the website as soon as volunteer activities restart.

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. 

Lunch: https://www.signupgenius.com/index.cfm?go=s.signup&urlid=409044fa5ae29a4fa7-lunches&view=calendar 

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. Due to COVID-19, these activities have been suspended.   


Update 2/5/21: Due to COVID-19 and the suspension of volunteer activities, we are not accepting volunteer applications at this time. Please check back in the near future.
