Alumni speak about their Steppingstone experience

Emeka Ekwelum ’02: “I saw hundreds of Scholars rising above adversity, doing extra homework, spending their summers taking classes, and working hard in school to get the best education they could so they could someday go to college. I thank Steppingstone for believing in us and giving us the opportunity for a great education and future.”

College success is only the beginning. Steppingstone Alumni go on to great things.

The rigor and hard work that alumni dedicate themselves to as young Scholars become habits that lead to a lifetime of achievement. We know, because Steppingstone alumni make a point of coming back to tell us. We consider their good news one of our most lasting rewards of our work.

Scholars may Graduate but the bonds endure throughout their lives

A ten-year-old begins a journey that often lasts a lifetime. Scholars from as far back as our founding class remain part of the Steppingstone community. Alumni serve as mentors, volunteers and council members. They gather for reunions and networking and career events. They continue to receive and also give back.

Screen Shot 2015-03-18 at 2.00.11 PMOnce Scholars graduate from college, they become Alumni and join a network of more than 600 young professionals who have similarly benefited from the academic rigors and sustained support that Steppingstone offered them.

They may travel far from the places where they began as 10-year-olds, but they never leave the Steppingstone community. The relationships forged–with teachers, Advisors, and other Scholars–last a lifetime. And many Alumni find ways to give back and stay connected, to each other as well as to the organization that set them on the path to college success. They serve as mentors, volunteers, donors, and ambassadors for Steppingstone.

They’re living proof that what we do changes lives, changes opportunities, changes communities. For generations.
