Baylor University will continue one of the largest college community service projects in the United States, when more than 2,000 Baylor students and volunteers participate in "Steppin' Out" on Saturday, April 3.

From 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., volunteers will work at approximately 100 job sites in Waco and surrounding areas, painting houses, cleaning up yards, interacting with nursing home residents and much more. Area organizations, churches and local residents are encouraged to submit job requests through Friday, March 5. Additionally, area volunteers are needed to perform work along with Baylor students.

To submit a job request or volunteer, call the Steppin' Out office at (254) 710-3199.

The mission of the Steppin' Out is to enhance student involvement in community service, while growing community awareness, interaction and collaboration between Baylor and the Waco community. Providing opportunities for experiential learning, civic leadership and social responsibility, Steppin' Out is frequently used as a foundation for the establishment of community service programs throughout the country.

Many Steppin' Out volunteers are also planning to participate in the Komen Race for the Cure before they report to their job site that afternoon. Following the day's festivities, volunteers will enjoy a "Celebration of Service" back on the Baylor campus, with free t-shirts, food and a concert by Recycled Percussion at Waco Hall.
