WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

Stepping Stones is a community-based youth mentoring program that operates drop-in centers for young people ages 10 to 21 in the Roaring Fork Valley. Our philosophy is that strong, long-term relationships with positive adult role models are the key to empowering youth and their families within our community. Our drop-in centers are open five days a week, and provide a diverse, bilingual atmosphere where participants feel comfortable sharing meaningful life experiences and challenges. Stepping Stones maintains a 10 to 1 youth to mentor ratio, and each participant works together with staff toward individualized goals. To meet the varied needs of our participants, Stepping Stones offers essential services and programming free of charge, including skill development, nightly meals, basic needs assistance, educational support and advocacy, community engagement, arts programming, and outdoor recreation.

Stepping Stones is in the midst of remodeling our youth centers in Carbondale. Want to learn more about our plans?
