Once Scholars graduate from college, they become Alumni and join a network of more than 1,000 young professionals. They may travel far from the places where they began as 10-year-olds, but they never leave the Steppingstone community. The relationships forged—with teachers, Advisors, and other Scholars—last a lifetime. And many Alumni find ways to give back and stay connected, to each other as well as to the organization that set them on the path to college success. They serve as mentors, volunteers, donors, ambassadors, and board members. They lead by example, inspiring and sustaining the next generation.
