ROSELAND, NJ — The Arc of Essex County’s Stepping Stones School, a school for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities located in Roseland, is seeking volunteers for the 2016-2017 school year.

Stepping Stones 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, which is accomplished with the assistance of volunteers from local communities.

An orientation for new and returning volunteers will take place at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 1 at Stepping Stones, located at 19 Harrison Avenue (Roseland Municipal Building) in the all-purpose room on the first floor.

Volunteers are needed weekday mornings and afternoons. Contact Judy Bellina, Volunteer Coordinator, at or 973-535-1181 ext. 1223 for more information.
