PEBBLE TOSSERS... start a ripple of giving


Pebble Tossers, Inc. is a youth service organization driven to ignite a passion for volunteerism in youth by matching their talents, abilities, and interests with the needs of the community.  Founded by two Atlanta women in 2008 that recognized the need for an online resource to connect kids, aged 4-18, with age-appropriate volunteer opportunities, the organization today has over Pebble Tossers has over 11,500 volunteers serving 117 local nonprofits representing 13 different cause areas.

Services provided by Pebble Tossers  
Hosting monthly Community Service Projects, which involve hands on service projects that benefit local nonprofits, Pebble Tossers exposes kids, teens and families to new organizations and cause areas.  The website features urgent needs in the community, posts helpful articles relating to timely or seasonal needs, and utilizes a custom search engine to match hundreds of service projects with local non-profits in our database.  Additionally, members can record planned and recorded service hours in our online Civic Transcript which can be used for schools, applying to college, and for civic and/or faith-based organization requirements.
 
Benefits of Youth Volunteerism & Community Service
Youth who participate in volunteerism and community service benefit in many ways:
  • Young people gain access to the range of supports and opportunities (or developmental assets) they need to grow up healthy, caring, and responsible. 
  • Increased sense of self-efficacy as young people learn that they can impact real social challenges, problems, and needs.
  • Higher academic achievement and interest in furthering their education.
  • Enhanced problem-solving skills, ability to work in teams, and planning abilities.
  • Enhanced civic engagement attitudes, skills and behaviors. Many leaders in public service today attribute being inspired and shaped through early experiences in community service or volunteering.
