A MESSAGE FROM

Sean Vereen,
PRESIDENT

At a moment of painful reckoning for our city and nation, we chose to issue a deeply personal message about why our Scholars matter and why Steppingstone – as an organization and a community – is so vital. Although Steppingstone has accomplished much since our founding in 1999, our work in building pathways for educational and socioeconomic mobility is more necessary now than ever before.
