Youth Mentoring is the foundation for all learning and development at Stepping Stones. Staff provide guidance and support to youth and young adults. Through positive adult leadership, compassion, and consistency staff are able to build long-term, impactful relationships with youth.
To achieve success and self-sufficiency an individual’s basic needs must be met. Stepping Stones provide home made meals Monday through Friday, access to laundry facilities and showers, and transportation assistance. The staff also refer participants to community organizations and professionals that provide support to youth and families.
Stepping Stones staff work with youth to develop important life skills that promote positive social, academic, personal and
professional growth. We coach and mentor youth towards acquiring a variety of skills and values including healthy lifestyle choices, job readiness, independent living, social awareness, compassion, and self-sufficiency.
Stepping Stones provides educational support to our students. We provide one-on-one tutoring at our drop-in centers and encourage students to be engaged, purposeful, and invested in their education.
Stepping Stones staff assist youth in developing knowledge, skills, and values from a variety of experiences. We provide experiential learning opportunities that stimulate inquiry and promote
interdisciplinary learning, civic engagement, career development, cultural awareness, leadership and intellectual skills.
We are fortunate to live in the beautiful Roaring Fork Valley and have access to so many amazing outdoor recreational activities. We expose youth to a variety of outdoor experiences that provide healthy alternatives to substance abuse and other unhealthy behaviors. We encourage youth to stop by our drop-in center to sign up for our events.
