Want to help local students by volunteering your time? Maybe that’s spending a few hours at a lively, crowded StEP store, helping kids spend and donate their hard-earned StEP bucks. Or lending your creativity to student participants in our Traveling T-shirt Company program. Or maybe you can help us at our enormous Market Madness event, where thousands of Tristate children gather to show off and sell products they’ve created in their classrooms. We offer a number of programs that require volunteers to run smoothly!
