STEP welcomes everyone to the table
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."
