Our new Leader Cohort just had their first overnight training while the Elders Council convened.
"So grateful to be starting this work as a Stepping Stones guide, mentoring young boys as they navigate their way into adolescence. Feels like such important work to be doing right now in the world, and I am immensely humbled and overjoyed to be entering this rich Stepping Stones community. What amazing individuals!" - New SSP Leader
You can meet our new members of the SSP Village on our Meet The Village Page.
Gratitude to all our new Leaders, Elders & Trainers for your fabulous energy as we start the new year. Our youth and families are so lucky to have you!
It's hard to encapsulate such a wondrous four day journey in the span of an email but we'll do our best to offer a thorough summary here...
We want to express gratitude to all the guests and community members who honored us with your presence, joyous spirits, and donations of all kinds to support the powerful work we do. Special thanks to our winemakers, West of Temperance, and to Angelo Chambrone and team for your phenomenal food pairings.
Last year SSP awarded more than $37,000 in tuition assistance to make the program accessible to more youth and families. The inaugural Stepping Stones Project Spirits by the Sea was a great success and raised $15,000 for our Tuition Assistance Fund.
Infinite thanks to each of you, and welcome to the village! Enjoy these photos, and can't wait to see you again for another great event.
