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.
