Student Enterprise Program

In StEP, elementary students earn school currency for positive behaviors such as completing homework on time, arriving at school on time, showing academic achievement, behaving well, etc. The Center provides an on-site school store at some school buildings four times per year, where students have the opportunity to purchase school supplies and novelty items. We need volunteers to help run the store and other aspects of the program.
