Inspiring quotes to encourage volunteers to serve

Hello! Welcome to our Project Stella Resources Blog! 

We all need a little inspiration. Planning meaningful service projects is tough!  You put so much time and energy to making everything “just right” and there is stress and frustration that comes with it. I know how it is! We need those words of encouragement to keep us going.

So… this post is pretty simple.  Here are some of my favorite inspiring quotes that encourage volunteers to serve and encourage me to keep doing what I am doing!

New here? I also have the following blog posts to help you plan meaningful service projects for youth volunteers.
