Board of Young Professionals

The Steppingstone Foundation’s Board of Young Professionals engages individuals in their 20s and 30s to support Steppingstone’s mission of college success for underserved students by raising awareness of the organization in the community; fundraising to support Steppingstone programs; and building a network of like-minded individuals who are passionate about education and college success. Board of Young Professionals members also serve as mentors for college-aged scholars at Steppingstone.

Board of Young Professionals members represent a variety of career fields but share a common interest in supporting Steppingstone’s mission and goals. Members of the young professionals group are committed to advancing the efforts of Steppingstone through volunteering, fundraising, mentoring, and networking.
