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.


For more information contact Conference Coordinator Cheryl Deep at or 313-664-2607.

Registration ends Oct. 15 or when we reach capacity. Don't miss out.

Adults Education Workshop: Counselors, teachers and social workers earn 3 CEs or SCECHs while students attend the conference. $10.  Register and pay for CEs online in May 2018. Or download and mail the CE flier after that date.
