About Our Youth Development Center

Stepping Stone is an education-based organization that works in

collaboration with the community and other non-profit organizations to support scholar students.

Our philosophy is the Four E’s:



It is our belief that community leaders are grown from our youth and new generations. Our plan is to move them forward in leadership and equality using education, economics, and employment.  They will have opportunities to implement lessons they have learned through the program. We will have them practice teamwork and a curriculum designed to show the needs of their communities. Participants will also be required to volunteer with other non-profit organizations to network and develop community relations.  They will not only become leaders in their communities, they will become mentors to the youth that come after them.

Stepping Stone Mentoring is recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable corporation and

all donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.  We partner with other 501(c)(3) corporations to bring the community closer.
