Inclusion, Harmony & Acceptance -- Giant Step brings teenagers together from diverse backgrounds to discover all the issues they have in common. Public, private, charter, parochial and even home schools from across southeast Michigan have sent thousands of students to Giant Step. Students come from different neighborhoods, cultures, races, incomes and outlooks. We provide guided discussion, games, exercises and lunch. They might enter as strangers, but they leave as friends.

Registration ends Oct. 16 or when we reach capacity. Don't miss out.

Adult Education Workshop:  Counselors, teachers and social workers earn 3 CEs or SCECHs while students attend the conference. $10.  Register and pay for CEs online.
Or download and mail the CE flier after August 1, 2019.

Can you help? $350 from you or your organization and 7 teens attend our conference for free.
