by Lori Scott Fogleman

Steppin' Out, Baylor University's community service tradition now in its 15th year, is scheduled for Saturday, March 24, with more than 3,000 Baylor students expected to participate.

From 8 a.m. to noon, volunteers will work at approximately 100 job sites, submitted by area organizations, churches and members of the community. Service opportunities include nursing home visits, house painting, and yard work and clean-up.

The work will be followed by lunch and a celebration of service outdoors at the SUB Bowl by the Bill Daniel Student Center on campus.

The mission of the Steppin' Out service project is to enhance student involvement in community service and in community awareness, interaction and collaboration between Baylor and the Waco community. Steppin' Out seeks to provide opportunities for experiential learning, civic leadership and social responsibility.

Steppin' Out is one of the largest community service projects on American college campuses today and is frequently used as a foundation for the establishment of community service programs throughout the state and the country.
