Calling All Volunteers!

Do you want to change lives, change your outlook, and make a difference by giving back to others?

If the answer is yes, there are many opportunities right here in the local community at Stepping Stones.  As our summer season rolls into fall, weekend programs at Stepping Stones are in need of teen, college-age and adult volunteers to assist with our Saturday Clubs.

There are some distinct benefits to giving your time and talents in volunteering.  Here are a few:

1)   Giving your time actually makes you feel time-rich.  Those who give away their time serving others say they feel less stressed about schedules than those who don’t.

2)   The social connection or enjoyment connected with volunteering allows those who give their time away feel more capable, confident and useful.

3)   Volunteering keeps you healthy, especially if you’re mature in years. Volunteers tend to have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, and lower rates of depression in later life than non-volunteers.

4)   Loving makes you feel more love. Volunteering builds empathy, strengthens social bonds and makes people smile, increasing the “happiness” factor.

5)   Volunteering will improve your social life! Volunteering fosters friendships with other volunteers as they share common interests.

6)   Volunteering is a good example for you, your family and your peers.
