Steps for Youth

Steps for Youth is a non-profit organization which strives to serve the community by partnering with local schools, encouraging creativity in a safe environment and providing opportunities and resources for youth of all backgrounds and abilities.

As we navigate this uncharted territory together, we ask for continued support of the non-profit arts organizations in our community. Non-profit organizations like Steps for Youth have no contingency budgets in the case of health emergencies like this one; our resources go to the continued operation of our school and students. It is impossible to close any business, including Steps, without creating hardships for the organization, our students and dedicated staff. Your support is even more critical right now as we navigate these challenges.

Please consider making a donation to sustain our organization during this critical moment. A gift of any size is impactful, and your generosity would be deeply appreciated by all our dancers, artists, and staff at this extremely vulnerable time.

Thank you for your generosity! We truly appreciate your support!
