Stepping Stones Project creates a much-needed support system for middle school youth and their families as they go through the universal transformation that is "Coming of Age." We provide opportunities to more deeply explore this important time through our fun and meaningful program. Learn about the Stepping Stones program and how we support youth through interactive presentations by members of the SSP community and experts in the field of youth development. Experience our philosophy and the tools of connection and communication we use in the groups!
