Stepping Stones was launched at the start of the 2005-2006 school year for middle school students in sixth through eighth grades. Research proves that kids drop out of school only after years of frustration and failure in early education. We launched Stepping Stones as a way to reach students before this frustration can lead to poor choices.
The program includes one-on-one mentoring, academic support, and case management much like our Milestones program, but also focuses more on after-school programming, such as study halls and small group workshops on leadership, peer pressure, and respect. The combination of support from the family, mentor, case manager, and school staff helps keep our scholars focused and on track for success.
All of our scholars must attend a partner school.
