School and Community Connections

Our Programs

Our Goal

At SteppingStone we use theatre as a tool to grow emotionally and socially healthy young people who are meaningful contributors to our community. We believe young people are powerful makers of culture and positive social change, so providing enriching arts experiences for their ideas to be realized is our first priority. Art making experiences with SteppingStone are rich, sometimes messy, collaborative processes from the first name game through the final sharing for family and friends. Teaching Artists guide developmentally sound lessons and experiences that place young people at the center as artists and makers.

Access to rich & collaborative Arts Experiences in childhood and early adulthood provide opportunities to hone crucial life-skills in critical thinking, social/emotional development, physical awareness, a sense of community, purpose, and meaningful contributions towards accomplishment.

At the heart of what we teach are our Core Values: Inspiration, Generosity, Belonging, Self-Advocacy, and Mastery
