Why Work for Us

Steppingstone’s Core Values

Power of One 

  • We honor every voice and believe we are strongest when we work together.
  • We recognize, respect, and nurture the fullness and complexity of each member of our community. 
  • We believe in the power of belonging and seek to create a welcoming and inclusive culture. 

Walk the Walk 

  • We partner with every Scholar and family, supporting them holistically throughout their own educational journey. 
  • We work with clear and measurable purpose, using data to drive collective decision-making and challenge assumptions. 
  • We create spaces for difficult conversations to transform our thinking and move us forward. 

Embrace Growth 

  • We strive to operate as an anti-racist organization and commit to continuous learning and action in the service of this goal. 
  • We provide opportunities for everyone in our community to flourish and reach their full potential. 
  • We make time for reflection, learn from past experiences, and take initiative in response to changing needs and new ideas.
