Review for STEPPING STONES INTERNATIONAL, Salt Lake Cty, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have spent the last two summers working with the staff and participants of Stepping Stones International to develop their curriculum. The staff has been eager to learn how to lesson plan and develop their skills in designing worthwhile activities that best benefit the learning of the participants. The goal is to educate the adolescents to improve their quality of life and develop a strong self-esteem so goals and dreams can be obtained. There was a major change in many of the participants from one year to the next. They portrayed a stronger sense of self and displayed higher levels of confidence. Lisa Jamu, the founder of Stepping Stones International, works tirelessly to find funding, build a quality, well trained staff, and network with the Mochudi and surrounding area communities. The biggest obstacle is funding and having the resources to further evolve and grow.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very dedicated to the participants and willing to work hard to make their experiences memorable and valuable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help more adolescents and change their lives forever!
