Richmond Stepping Stones Ceremony
"I came to a Stepping Stones ceremony for a friend and I was very touched by what she had to do to get there. I was very happy for her and it sparked my interest to get help myself."
- Darmeshia, Rubicon Participant
Each of our two-week Foundations Workshops ends with a Stepping Stones Ceremony. Even though many participants say that completing the core workshop is "the first time I've finished anything in a long time," it is the first step on a journey that will have many occasions for celebration.
All of our ceremonies feature personal stories, inspirational speakers and special guests from the community, including representatives from the City of Richmond, Contra Costa County, Alameda County and local legislators.
We welcome the public to join us at these inspiring events so that they can learn about our theory of change, experience our work — or simply come to get inspired. To attend or speak at an upcoming Stepping Stones Ceremony, please contact our Development Department at least 24 hours before the date of the ceremony you would like to attend at firstname.lastname@example.org.
