Step Forward Day is celebrating 25 years of uniting the Pepperdine community for an international day of community service. Step Forward Day is a simple yet profound way for the Pepperdine community to make a difference and live the mission of our alma mater. Each year, the Pepperdine community comes together for a day of service. For the volunteers, the tradition of Step Forward Day reflects a commitment that lasts beyond this single day of service.
Step Forward Day began in 1988 from the vision of two students who recognized the need for volunteers in the local community and wanted to share their passion for service with their peers. The projects began as small acts of service from helping with repairs on homes of local senior citizens to planting gardens at Webster Elementary. Today the reach of Step Forward Day has grown to include community organizations and involves 2,000 alumni, students, parents, friends, staff, and faculty throughout the world.
