Community Service Projects
Children have a natural desire to help others. Each year, children at Stepping Stones participate in community service efforts that benefit local, national, or worldwide causes. The school curriculum and philosophy encourage respect for self, other people and other cultures, the community, and the world. Undertaking service projects helps give the children a sense of understanding of others in different circumstances, which, in turn, fosters respect.
Below is a sampling of community service projects in which we have engaged in recent years.
