Mission Statement

The old saying goes, "it takes a village to raise a child." Well, the support from the village should not be limited to children; all of us can benefit from the support of our villages; be they literal villages, or other communities. You can offer this sense of community to a young adult who faces challenges his or her family alone may not be able to help navigate. Join STEPS, and offer yourself as a resource and a support system for a high school student trying to be the first in his or her family to attend and graduate from college. Be a mentor, a tutor, and a friend to a high school student working towards college. Help build a new village here in Tacoma; a vibrant, urban village community centered around learning and personal growth.

Description

STEPS pairs University of Washington, Tacoma students with high school students from Tacoma in a partnership focused on academic achievement. UWT students share their knowledge and experience with high school partners to help the younger students navigate the complicated and challenging process of graduation, college and career exploration, and college application. This partnership offers a wealth of benefits to both students.
