Recognition Ceremony 

Every year, we eagerly invite the Steps community to celebrate our students' achievements at our annual Recognition Ceremony. The COVID-19 pandemic prevented us from recognizing our students in person, but we were thrilled to hold a Virtual Recognition Ceremony during the week of June 1, 2020. Headlining this event was a congratulatory video, assorted care packages for scholars, and lawn signs around Brookline letting everyone know about the success they have worked incredibly hard to achieve.

Stepping Back to School 


Wow. Just wow. This Steps family of supporters has done it again, opening their hearts and lending the community support that has powered this campaign to success. All we can say is “thank you,” but especially now it doesn’t quite capture to breadth of our gratitude.

In addition to the many individual donors who so generously supported our efforts, some familiar (and new!) friends in the local community joined Steps in taking the lead as champions of a better school year for our students. Our thanks to the following organizations for their contributions to our efforts:


We look forward to sending our students off to school in person come 2021, but despite the challenges ahead, you have all done a wonderful thing by ensuring our Steps students have what they need to meet those challenges in 2020. Your generosity has once more proven vital to our students’ success this school year, in and out of the classroom. We are deeply grateful. Here's to a safe, healthy, and productive school year!
