Before you delve into this final issue of 2020, just a few words...
First and foremost, our students’ tenacity and drive are stronger than ever! They show up, engage in programming, reach out for help, work with tutors, and attend study halls and office hours. They’ve learned how to manage virtual programming. The high school seniors are in the thick of finalizing college and financial aid applications while our college students are wrapping up the fall semester.
Our volunteers, from the Baltimore area and beyond, remain our front line of student support. As writing advisors, academic tutors, career coaches and STEM seminar hosts and panelists, they provide the direct support crucial to our students’ success.
Continually expanding our business and community partnerships, we know that only together are we able to equip our students with the tools to propel them to college and career success. With thanks for all you do to support our students, all of us at Building STEPS wish you and yours a happy, healthy new year.
