A National Lens

Steppingstone is an active member of the National Partnership for Educational Access (NPEA), which connects the people, practices, and innovations essential for eliminating barriers to educational access, and college/career success for historically marginalized students. On their website, NPEA has been compiling information for nation-wide supporters at schools and programs –such as Steppingstone– so that we can be better-equipped to help the students and families we serve. Their website also lists additional college-related resources that may be helpful to some Scholars and families. You can access their website directly here.
