Two Step for Small Steps


With last year being a virtual event due to COVID-19, we were so excited to return to an in-person Two Step for Small Steps event this year. Two Step for Small Steps is hosted by the Small Steps Young Professionals Group, and this year was an entertaining evening of networking, dancing, and fun, all in support of early childhood education for children in poverty. We can’t wait for the 2023 Two Step for Small Steps!

Small Steps’ mission would not be possible without the support of our community. We are grateful to have hundreds of volunteers a year working to enrich our student’s education. Your time and efforts help us create the nurturing environment that makes Small Steps so special.

Prayer Partner

Prayer Partners are assigned an individual Small Steps student to pray for throughout the school year. We ask that Prayer Partners spend at least 30 minutes each week praying for the Lord’s blessing, guidance, protection, and strength for his/her Small Steps student.
