Sharing Time with Elders Project

What is STEP?

STEP is a volunteer program inspiring people to bridge the generations through powerful conversations.

Mission?  To change the social norm of aging and to understand the value of every person at any age.


Talking and listening to an Elder or Youth fills the heart and stimulates the mind.

Check out this Flyer on how you can get involved.

The Elder Project

STEP is proud to partner with Cedar High School in Shelton and Community Elders for a gathering of conversation. The youth will interview the Elders, document a part of their life and share it in a Zine. Check  out this Flyer to participate.

STEP welcomes everyone to the table

All Ages

All Races

All Genders

All Religions

All Abilities

Come in with an open mind and leave your expectations at the door

Ask questions to understand

Try not to condemn or convert

Speak your truth with all due respect

Listen with patience

"I have hope for the future."

"I'm not afraid to talk to older people anymore."

"I learned that we have more similarities than differences. Elders have lived really interesting lives."

"STEP has given me another perspective in life and I am extremely grateful to be able to participate from another country."
