The Arc of Essex County Seeks Volunteers for its Stepping Stones School

August 4th, 2017

The Arc of Essex County’s Stepping Stones School, a school for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, is seeking volunteers for the 2017-2018 school year. Stepping Stones, located in Roseland, NJ, serves children from birth to ten years of age. A unique aspect of this program involves a one-on-one student to volunteer concept for many of the children. This is accomplished with the assistance of volunteers from local communities.

Volunteers are needed for weekday mornings and afternoons. A commitment of ½ day per week, the same day each week from September to June is required. If interested in volunteering, please contact Judy Bellina, The Arc of Essex County’s Volunteer Coordinator, at jbellina@arcessex.org or 973-535-1181 ext. 1223. Individual orientations will be scheduled and held at Stepping Stones, located at 19 Harrison Avenue (Roseland Municipal Building), prior to the start of the school year.

Pictured (L-R) Melita Koehler, a 25 year volunteer from Livingston, Sally Meter, a 25-year volunteer from Verona, and Christina Wager, a 1-year volunteer from Morristown, were recently recognized for their services to The Arc of Essex County’s Stepping Stones School at a luncheon hosted by the parents of Stepping Stones students.
